Hadith on Urinating While Standing

hadith

Hudhaifah said: “The Messenger of Allah came to a place where a group of people threw their refuse, and he urinated standing up. He (pbuh) then called for water, and wiped over his leather socks (during Wudu). (Sahih)

Comments:

Squatting to relieve oneself is more commonly reported, this Hadith proves that when there is a reason and genuine need, there is no harm in standing to relieve oneself, provided one does so in a way that they can protect themselves from any splashing of the urine.

(Sunan-Abu-Dawud volume 1, number 23)
