So far, this is the most serious attempt in the search of a Muslim urinal. Check here and here for my earlier rants on this topic. I think there are many people trying to come up with a good design for a Muslim urinal, but here is a design that has already been implemented.

Muslim Urinal at Masjid Salman ITB
As you can see, the urinal is the so-called Muslim urinal by Toto, i.e. a urinal with a water drip that goes in the urinal. The only difference is the shield that protects the user from splashes of urine.
At this point, I do not know if there is a basis for the design decisions. For example: what is the height of the shield. Should it be a little bit higher so that the sides cover the urinal all the way up? Is there a research on the “splash rate” from the original Toto urinal, and whether this design eliminates the splash?
In any case, I want this for my masjid. What do you think?
