Q: My father died two years ago. I was suddenly touched by my mother and I felt lust. What is the ruling for this?

I am unmarried now. When I get married:

1. Are my children allowed to marry my own brother's/sister's or step sister's children?

2. Can I marry my mother's brother's daughter?

A: Lust means that there was skin to skin contact or you could feel the heat of her body through your clothing and you experienced an erection due her touching. If this was not found then there is no hurmat.

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