The negative effects of drinking water in the standing position

  1. What are the negative effects of drinking water in the standing position?

 Ibn al-Qayyim said; Drinking whilst standing has numerous negative effects, one of which is that it does not fully quench the thirst and does not settle in the stomach so that the liver can distribute the nutrients to other parts of the body. Rather it comes to the stomach with speed and force, and there is the fear that it will cause a chill or disturbance, and may pass quickly to the lower parts of the body without moving gradually.  End of quote from Zaad al-Ma‘aad, 4/229.
