Doubts on hurmat-e-musaaharah

Q: Does humeraat e musaahara happen with just a quick touch? I was taking my baby from my father in law and could have touched his hand or it was my babies skin im not sure, and then the thought came that I am touching lustfully. I'm not sure if it was lustfull or not. This happens a lot. What can I do about it?

A: Hurmat musaaharah did not take place.

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