Son touching the mother

Q: About fifteen to twenty years ago my brother touched my mother at chest near neckline. My mother being a very light sleeper woke up. I got to know about hurmat-e musaharat masala sometime ago. I'm not sure about his age. It may be 13 or below. My mother is absolutely sure that he didn't touch her with lust. But I'm having guman that may be my parents nikaah is broken. I'm very depressed.

A: If he did not touch her with lust, hurmat musaaharah did not take place.

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