I pray daily five times. Sometimes my body pain and I will go for lady massage but not for sex. Is it a sin, if so what is punishment?
I need further answer relating to the above.
Praise be to Allaah.
We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uhaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:
It is not permissible for him to give her a massage or for her to give him a massage. Something is bound to happen, especially if they are both young.
came to close all the doors that may lead to temptation and provocation
for one or both parties. Massage involves uncovering part of the body and
direct touching, so it poses a serious danger of temptation and the
provocation of desires. You have to look for male masseurs who can do this
for you when you need it it, or let some of your family members learn how
to do massage so that they can do that for you. May Allaah help us and you
to do that which He loves and which pleases Him.
