Marriageable Relations Being Forbidden by Touching   

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I read a small pamphlet regarding an issue called HURMAT-US-SAHARAH, it mentioned if a man touches his mother-in-law with lust then his wife becomes Haraam for him. Please advise ruling according to Hanafi and Shaafii, and if one has done such an act but is not sure whether he had any lust in his heart at the time or not, what would be the ruling concerning him?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

Such tracts are usually contrary to the sunna manner of conveying the religion of Allah and His Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace), the basis of which is to, “Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good words,” [Qur’an] and to, “Make things easy for people and do not make them difficult; encourage people and do not make them turn away.” [Hadith] With this, one often finds such literature to be sensationalist and inaccurate. As the early Muslims would say, “This matter is your religion, so be careful about whom you take your religion from.”

And Allah alone gives success.
