Will hurmat-e-musaaharah be established through fantasizing?

Q: If a boy is masturbating and during masturbation he imagines a woman in his mind and he did not touch that woman with lust. So would this man be allowed to marry that woman's daughter?

A: Yes, it is permissible for him to marry her daughter. However, he should make taubah for his sins.

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