Q: What exactly is hurmat-e-musaaharah and what should one do if it is created?
A: Hurmate musaaharat is when a male touches a female (who is of an age that a common person could have a lustful inclination to her) with lust and vice versa without any thick cloth separating the skin of both.
When hurmate musaaharat is established then the ascendants and descendants of both the people involved become haraam for each other.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
