As salaamu wa alay kum,

Today morning received this email regarding the Squatty Potty revolution, and while reading it I was like, Alhamdulillah! The west is waking up to this now but our blessed Prophet, Prophet Muhammad [Peace be upon him] already taught us this more than a 1400 years ago!

To squat to eliminate is sunnah! 

The west discovers this only now.

Why squat to eliminate?

1. Squatty Potty Toilet Stool Improves Anorectal Angle:

When we’re sitting this bend, called the anorectal angle, is kinked which puts upward pressure on the rectum and keeps the feces inside. This creates the need to STRAIN in order to eliminate. Compare sitting on the toilet to a kinked garden hose, it just doesn’t work properly. In a squatting posture the bend straightens out and defecation becomes easier. 
 
Assuming the squat position is the natural way to achieve easier and more complete elimination. Research has shown that in some people, the kink is completely gone while squatting.
 
 
2. There are many health benefits to squatting including:• Un-kinking your rectum taking your body from a continent mode to an elimination mode.
• Reduced straining and decreased pressure in the anal and rectal veins.
• Easier elimination and efficiency - complete emptying of the bowel.

Remember to practice upon this with the intention of practicing upon a Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet [peace be upon him] and not for the benefits, those are just extra accessories.

Imagine what would have happened if the Companions [Sahabah] had asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) for proof of it being beneficial!
