Drinking and sitting on book

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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


In normal circumstances, the guidance and Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) is that the believers should drink or eat while in a seated position. But if the place is unclean, or if one is in a place where it is not possible to sit down; there is no harm if one eats or drinks while standing. In normal circumstances the Messenger of Allah (saws) always sat down when eating or drinking; but it is also reported that sometimes he (saws) ate and drank while in a standing position.


If one could not find a place to sit and one temporarily did sit on a book or stack of books to eat or drink, there is absolutely no harm and no sin.


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 in Islam,
