    Title: Peeing while standing

    Question: I work in an office where majority of persons are non-Muslims and while using the toilet they pee on the commode (toilet seat) and leave it dirty and filthy. Now if the toilets are not clean to sit can one pass urine while standing?

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 66/56/L=1434) It is makrooh to urinate in the state of standing. However, if it is difficult to urinate sitting due to impurity then it is allowable to urinate standing. (Shami, Vol. 1, p. 557)
