Am i allowed to rub my aunt's feet and give her a massage?

My aunt usually asks me to rub her feet and i don't want to desrespect her so i do it, but is this permissabe?

(salam)

It depends, if she is Mahram, meaning if she is your mother or father's sister, than yes you can do it. But if you mean, Uncle's wife by aunt than no, it is not permissible as she is Non-Mahram.

Well since you're sunni, I'm not sure what your Aalims think(since we disagree on who we think are Mahrams). Thought I WOULD recommend you to massage her through a piece of cloth so that your hands do not come in direct contact with your aunt's feet, that is acceptable by both fiqhs.

Wow, seriously? It's just his aunt...so why would it be wrong?

It's cool, nothing wrong! :lol:

But, since he belongs to a different sect, I advised him to take an obligatory precaution of using a cloth, since I do not know what his sect says in this matter (as it might not consider an aunt as a mahram)

Sorry for being discriminatory.

Sunnis also consider a direct aunt to be mahram. It's in the Qur'an. 24:31

In the case of physical therapy, the practice of medicine, or providing relief, many things that would otherwise be non-permissible are allowed. Just like you would accept a male doctor examining a woman for breast cancer, or even delivering a baby, there should be absolutely no problem with such physical contact or exposure. 

I remember hearing a quote from Imam Khomeini that the best indicator as to whether something is permissible is your conscience (الضمير). You know whether your intentions are pure, selfless, and positive, or whether they are malicious. If there are impure intentions, even touching the hands of your Mahram can be unacceptable.

Look if she is in pain then Islam allows the massaging of feet of a non-mahram. If u are not massaging for purpose of reliving her pain then its haram (because she is non- marham). Hazart nabi Muhammad (PBAHAHF) said its OK because u are providing medical help to someone. If it was your mother's sis then she be marham. Besides health issues it is haram to touch non- marham feet such as uncle wife.
