At times I have to use the restroom at work and am aware as Muslims it is not permissible to stand while urinating without a valid excuse. Also as we are aware that the places of relieving oneself in our American society are filthy especially the mens’ restrooms due to men urinating all over, not only the seat but as well as the floor etc etc. The question is in this situation what do we as Muslims do when we have to relieve ourselves in such facilities? I do not like to stand and relieve myself but in most cases if I try to sit and relieve myself then my clothes may come in contact with the urine on the floor thus making my salah invalid. Take note I do not wear my trousers below my ankles, I have exhausted trying to locate a private restroom, such as one the administration at my workplace uses that may be kept clean and would suffice for me to relieve myself and In most cases I do not use the restroom unless my bladder is absolutely going to burst. Then I usually am forced to
stand and relieve myself and sometimes I don’t know if my clothes have had urine slash on to my clothes because if one stands you see the urine splash because the pressure of relieving oneself but I feel ashamed to do this because it is against the etiquette’s of relieving oneself in Islam. What to do? Would I still be held accountable for this in the sight of Allah SWT? Should I repeat my salah upon returning home? I do know that many Muslim males are undergoing the same challenge. Please advise

Q. ok fair enough, blk magic is forbidden. Read your answers on em. Can we have white magic for good health on ourselves? (Friday night student, personal email box)
A. All types of magic must be stayed away from. They stem from the agents of shaytan. Their intention is control matters away from the Mercy of Allah (Subhanahu Wata’Ala) to the pitch of shaytan and the lowly urges and desires of humans. Stay away from them all.
Good filth and bad filth are both filth. They affect ones Imaan. They affect our relationship with people. They eventually fail us — sometimes in this world, sometimes in the hereafter, and other times, in both the worlds. May Allah (SWT) save us from all types of manipulation.
Allah certainly knows best.
