View Full Version : Washing/dressing non-mehrams?

06-20-2013, 09:08 PM
Peace to y'all :sunny:

I am soon to begin working in a care home.
The job involves helping the residents with their day to day lives, including washing, bathing, dressing and feeding them.

I have no problems with fulfilling any of these tasks, however my granny has told me she is uncomfortable with the idea as she thinks it may be haraam.
I would like to find out what the Islamic rulings are regarding seeing the body of non-mehram men and women under these circumstances, and try to follow the Islamic ruling so as to give her peace of mind.
If anyone know anything on this matter, please share.

Bear in mind that the residents are likely to be very old therefore lusty thoughts are off the cards. :uuh:
