Salaam alaikum, I hope you’ve had a blessed Ramadan, and Eid Mubarak to you. I had a pressing question if you could please help clarify, if a man has a maternal aunt that is only 4/5 years older than him, what is the relationship permissibility? I know that an aunt holds a high status in Islam, but taking the age-similarity for the nephew and aunt into consideration, does this change the permissibility of the way you can be with one’s aunt? For example, is full hugging, holding hands, being alone in a room together, and kissing etc allowed? If you could please help clarify for me, I know it’s an odd question, but just wanted to some clarification as usually an aunt would be a similar age to the mother, not similar in age to the nephew in question. Jazakallah
