I want to ask about taking a shower in a standing position. Nowadays in bathrooms the shower is attached to the wall so normally the shower is taken by standing. I have heard that it causes illness, seizure of rizq if one takes shower in standing position. Please guide me to the Islamic rulings in the light of the sunnah in this matter. Whether it is permissible to take a shower while standing or one should take shower in sitting posture?
Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,
It is permissible to take a shower while standing. It is better to sit and take a shower.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
