Wudu ghusl shower standing

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

To the best of our knowledge there is absolutely no restriction or obligation on the believers in Shariah regarding the permissibility/impermissibility of performing their ‘wudu’ or their ‘ghusl’ in a sitting, or standing, or even in a lying down position….thus one is at liberty to perform their obligation of ‘wudu’ or ‘ghusl’ in any position which is easy and convenient for them.

Similarly, as long as the water itself is pure, the source where the water flows from is immaterial…thus doing ‘wudu’ from a wash basin or taking a bath from a shower above are both considered absolutely permissible.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
