Urinating Whilst Standing


salaam alikum,

Please could you confirm if it is allowed to urinate whilst standing for men, as whilst I’m at work sitting is hard as the toilet is very dirty?

Jazakallah ahirun



wa `alaykum salam,

It is not haram for a man to urinate standing up, but it is Sunnah to urinate sitting down. It is allowed to urinate standing up in your situation on the condition that there is no risk of drops of urine splashing onto your body or clothes, and that you don’t expose your ‘awrah.
