Is it true that men cannot urinate (pee) while standing? If yes, please include a Hadith or Quran evidence(s).

Thank you,

What the brother had said is the haqq, inshallah I will expound on it a little further, enemies of islam has tried to use this issue to denounce the sunnah of the Rasul saws. Shaykh Al Banni has stated that both of these hadiths are correct and sound. What the Mother of the believers eas referring to is what the Rasul did at home and the other reports was talking about when he traveled. So their is no contradiction of the sunnah. Allahu Alim, salaam

It is not forbidden for a person to urinate while standing, because it has been authentically reported by al Bukhari and Muslim, on the authority of Huthaifah, may Allah be please with him, that the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) came to the rubbish pit of a people and urinated while standing (al-Bukhari no.226). Permission to urinate standing has also been narrated from Umar, Ali, ibn Umar and Zaid bin Thaabit, may Allah be pleased with them, due to the above mentioned Hadith.

But it is prescribed by the Sunnah for a person to urinate sitting, according to the words of A’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, who said: ‘Whoever told you that the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) urinated standing, do not believe him. He did not urinated except sitting.’ (At-Tirmithi no.12 and an-Nisaa’i no. 29) at-Tirmithi said: ‘This is the best and most correct saying in this matter – also because it is better to guard and protect him from being splashed with his own urine.’

I didn't vote it mike, and the brother is right, I just cleared the elephant in the room, al hamdulilah, because some do attempt to use this to discredit the sunnah. Salaam
