Dhikr in washrooms (not toilets)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Is it makruh or mustahab to perform recite supplications during wudhu and one is performing the wudhu in the sink adjacent to the toilet of the bathroom? There are some bathrooms that are well-kept and clean (i.e. there are no visible traces of najasa). However, one scholar mentioned that a screen should be put up to separate the toilet from the sink and then it would be okay to do dhikr while doing wudhu. What is the popular position on this issue?
