Daughter massaging her father’s feet

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: If a daughter presses her father’s feet below the knees solely with the intention of khidmat and the daughter nor the father feels or has any lustful thoughts before, during or after the act. They don’t feel anything at all, then does hurmat-e-musaharat take place? (The daughter is married)


A: If there is no lust on both sides then there is no hurmat-e-musaaharat.

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