Gulbahar asked 2 years ago

Assalamu Aleikum w Rahmatullahi w Baraktuh.
Im a 18 year old girl, and I was called to go to an interview for a job. And it is very important to me to have an job at this moment because i need to help My mother pay bills. The job was to help people at an home who helps people with disabilites, like down syndrome for example. The Woman who held the interview with me asked if i was okay with helping the patients to shower and that includes the genitals, men and women. In My head I thought “No, i can absolutly not wash the men” but i Said to her yes so i could go home and talk about it with My family and think, i can just turn down the job if she would call me. My husband said that this is okay for him to ler me work there because they have disabilites. But im very insecure about this, will i be doing a big sin by washing these mens genitals? If so, im gonna start looking for another job qiuckly. How should I do?
