What is the ruling on drinking while one is standing?
You'll find multiple reports from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that at times he would sit down to drink, and you would find several reports where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is standing to drink. So, what the scholars derived from this is that when one is able to it is encouraged to drink while one is sitting down. However, if there is a reason to drink while standing, that is also permissible, as we see in the in the hadith of Sahih Muslim Abdullah llamada de la Noma, he says that we are drinking and walking at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there was nothing wrong with that. So what we should try to do is when we're able to sit
down and drink that is better and closest to the prophetic action. However, in certain circumstances where one is busy or engaged and they have other things to do, so they drink while walking or drink while standing, then this is something permissible as well.
