Please explain why we should ask Allah for protection when entering and exiting the bathroom. Maybe also give example of what one should say for ones who do not know. Thanks

A person should seek Allahs protection from the Devils (Shayateen) that usually are and go to places of impurities and uncovered private parts (Also Prophet said - Those are the places that devils haunt)

the Prophet (عليه الصلاة والسلام) used to say when entering and leaving:

Entering: A’oodhu Billaahi min al-khubthi wa’l-khabaa’ith

Meaning: I seek refuge Allaah from the male and female devils

Leaving: Ghufraanaka

Meaning: Your forgiveness

Note: Allahs name has and is not been said while entering & leaving.

When entering the toilet recite:

Bismillah "In the name of Allah" It is in the hadith that between the eyes of Satan and the private parts of man Bismillah is a barrier therefore, this dua should be recited.

اللُّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ الْخُبْثِ وَالْخَبَائِثِ

"O Allah. I seek refuge in You from the male female evil and Jinns".

(Mishkat, Hisnul Hasin)
