Doing wudoo’, drinking and urinating whilst standing

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is there anything wrong with doing wudoo’, drinking or urinating whilst standing?

Praise be to Allaah.

A Muslim may do wudoo’ in whatever way is easy and practical for him, whether sitting or standing. He may also drink standing or sitting, although it is better to drink sitting down. He may also urinate standing up if necessary, as long as no one can see his ‘awrah (private parts which should remain covered) and there is no danger of the urine coming back on him. It is better to urinate sitting down, because this is how the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did it in most cases.

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