Stray thoughts

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I often get evil thoughts about my aunt. Now I am married to my auntie’s daughter. According to my mind, I have never touched her with lust and now I came to know about hurmate musahrah. After engagement she often praises me and several times I sit with her for a photo, etc but I didn’t feel lust but I do feel shy. Now I m getting waswasa’s about hurmate musaharah. Please guide me. I am in a doubtful condition and really worried. As per my thoughts I haven’t touched her with such imagination.


A: Don’t become too close to her. Don’t worry about stray thoughts.

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