Going to a hindu woman for massages for medical reasons

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am a woman. I have sluggish blood circulation problem and severe anemia leading to weak heart and CHD. I do not wish to take the allopathic treatment which eventually leads to operations. I have been advised to take body massage as alternative. Can I go for massages by a hindu ayurvedic lady doctor. I am a married woman with grown up children.


A: We feel very insecure with these types of people, their practices, procedures, etc.

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