Girl hugging her uncles

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it permissible for me to hug my uncles e.g. mother’s brothers and father’s brothers?


A: Though it is permissible, however on account of the abundant fithna found everywhere and suspicions created in the minds of people, it is not advisable.

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