Seeing another persons genital area when helping them with istinja

Question ID: 34089

A family member is now unable to properly use their hands hence cannot longer do istinja on their own. Due to this I am in the situation where I have to assist them. This means I unwillingly have to see their genital area. This I find traumatising as I have never seen another person’s genitals before. I also find it further disgusting as it is connected to human excrement.

1) Why has Allah put this affliction in front of me?

2) Is it permissible for me to look at this family member’s genitals in this situation?

1) So that you will get extra reward and your spiritual status will rise tremendously.
2) Yes, if the need arises and they are your Mahram. Soon you will be able to do the necessary by just feeling/touching.
