Looking at the satr of the deceased

Q: Can a son see the satr of his deceased father? The reason is that there was soo much mess because of Diarrhoea, the person had to look and wipe because the initial wiping was just smearing the faeces in different places. This is for a specific case only, not for all cases.

A: To look at the body from navel to knee is not permissible. This can be washed off with a sheet covering him.

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