Q: I had a big discussion about hurmat musaharat with a scholor of the Shafi school of thought. There exists absolutely different opinions about this issue. Would you be kind enough to provide us all Quraan aayat and ahaadith with English translations on the basis of which the Hanafi scholars give fatwa for hurmat musaharat.
Secondly, how do we define shahwat and how is it determined for this issue?
Thirdly, why is there a great difference in opinion of both Shafi and Hanafi mazhabs.
1. Look at the verse:
وَلَا تَنكِحُوا۟ مَا نَكَحَ ءَابَآؤُكُم مِّنَ ٱلنِّسَآءِ
2. It will be better for you to go through a formal study of the reference books of fiqh. Insha Allah you will not have problems later on.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
