Standing and urinating

Q: Is it allowed to urinate standing using a urine pot which does not splash urine and keeps the clothes clean?


A: The sunnah method of relieving oneself is that one relives oneself in the squatting posture. This will be fulfilled through using the eastern toilet. In this way one will save oneself from the urine splashes and carry out the istinja in accordance to the sunnah method. 

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
