Feeling lust when being touched by one’s mother

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: A few months ago after I had returned from a journey to my home, my mother touched me with her both hands on my face and she was crying as she missed me. She touched me 2-3 times and I felt strange and did my best to stop the feeling which might constitute hurmat musaharah. The feeling and notions stopped after few seconds but the private part reached its limit. This all happend within 15-20 seconds and my mother stopped touching me on my cheeks. Does hurmat take place? My parents are of liberal mindset and I’ll have to face problems after announcing this. Should I keep quiet? Or reveal this to them?


A: If there was erection experienced at the time that she touched you then this will cause hurmat to be established.

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