Can doctors look at womens satr

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)



One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Assalamualikum, Dear brother, When you say its forbidden for a women to look at another women`s satir then what will be the ruling for nurse or a doctor to look at the satir of a preganent women. Are the male or female doctors allowed to look at their patients private parts for examination. Thanks.

Can doctors look at womens satr

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


The ruling for the respect for ones satr is in general circumstances. There is absolutely no harm and no sin if a nurse or a doctor examines the private parts of their patients in need.


In such circumstances it would be prudent and purer for a man to choose a male nurse or doctor, and for the women to choose a female nurse or doctor; but if they absolutely cannot find one, there would be no sin on them if in desperation they were examined by a nurse or a doctor of the opposite sex.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
