Going for a massage

Q: Kindly inform me is body massage haraam in Islam? If haram then kindly explain in which conditions is it haram?


A: It is permissible provided a woman massages a woman and a man massages a man and lust is not perceived by either one during the massage.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
