Permissible Massages: Male Masseurs and Boundaries

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it permissible to get your body massaged including the thighs and the glutes by a male masseur as long as lust is not perceived?


A: Avoid getting the thighs and glutes massaged. The massage must not be done by the opposite gender or a person who is attractive looking.

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