Shower while standing

Fatwaa ID: 1561

Is ther anything wrong in having a shower ( standing)
A sin/ makrooh?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

It is permissible to shower while standing. It is not makrooh nor a sin to do so. However, it is better to shower while sitting at an elevated place if that prevents the used water or any possible impurity from touching the person or his clothing.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
