Hurmat-e-Musaaharah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: For humrat one must touch the other lustfully. Lustfully means a strong sexual desire according to the english dictionary. According to islam does it mean the same thing? So if one does not have a strong sexual desire humrat does not take place even though two people touched each other by shaking hands?

Bismillaah

A: Lust according to us does not have to be a strong desire. Any desire will amount to lust.

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