Touching one’s wife’s daughter with lust

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If someone’s husband touched his wife’s daughter (his stepdaughter) on her breasts. What is the ruling? Does it invalidate the ladies nikaah upto three talaaqs? If it invalidates the nikaah upto one talaq, can they get back together? If the lady has other children from her husband, what is the relationship of them with the ladies stepdaughter?


A: If this was done with lust then his wife becomes haraam for him. Hence, he will need to end the marriage.

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