Hurmat-e-musaaharah becoming established through touching a woman with lust

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I had read that hurmat-e-musaharah take place only if there was a lawful relationship. I just saw a post that if a man committed zina with a women he cannot marry his daugther. But if he wasn’t married to that women and was mislead by shaitan.

Below is what I found.

On the other hand Imam Shaafi (rahmatullahi alaihi) is of the view that hurmat-e-musaharah is established only through lawful intercourse and not through unlawful sexual intercourse or touching.


A: According to the Hanafi Mazhab, hurmat-e-musaaharah becomes established even through unlawful intercourse or touching the body of a woman with lust.

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