Hurmate Musahara

13 Sep 2021 Ref-No#: 3499

Assalamualykum I have this confusion in a long time and my question is that I randomly had lustfullness feeling and I get random erections and I merely touched my mother didn’t feel tempreter it was merely so I went to a few hanafi websites to see of my parents nikkah was broken but then to other said that it isn’t broken and I am following ahlus sunna wal jamaat and want to know there opinion because I saw one mufti saying it isn’t broken on youtube and he’s part of ahlus sunnah wal jammat not fully sure but another website from hanafi fiqh said there’s no hurmate musahara in family and is for only in laws so I am very confused too and my family is happy and well known in the community and respected aswell so I want to know if my parent nikkah is broken or not

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,‎

We complement for asking, rather than sufficing on a self study.‎

Hurmah al-Musaaharah is established in the Hanafi Madhab, whether it through one’s in-‎laws, or his biological family.‎

From your query, we understand that you did not experience lust at the moment of ‎touching. Hence, Hurmah al-Musaahrah will not be established. ‎Hence, your parents Nikah will be intact.

We advise you to maintain extreme caution in future, especially since you get these feelings.
