Speaking whilst doing wudoo is it Makrooh?
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen was asked about speaking whilst doing wudoo’: is it makrooh?
He (may Allah have mercy on him) replied:
Speaking whilst doing wudoo’ is not makrooh, but in fact it distracts the individual, because when the one who is doing wudoo’ washes his face, heshould bear in mind that he is obeying the command of Allah, and when he washes his arms, wipes his head and washes his feet, he should bear this intention in mind.
But if someone speaks to him, and he speaks to that person, this focus is disrupted and he may also get confused about his wudoo’, and he may be faced with waswaas as a result of that.
So it is preferable for him not to speak until he has finished his wudoo’. But if he does speak, there is no blame on him for that.
