Wudhu while sitting down due to illness
  • Question:

    I have a friend who has Parkinsons and cannot perform wudu when standing up. Can she perform Wudhu sitting down?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    May Allah Almighty bless your friend with cure, healing and treatment. Yes it is permissible for her to perform wudhu while seated. There is no instruction in Islam stating that standing is a requirement for validity of wudhu.

    And Allah knows best.
