Hurmat-e-musaaharah if one did not get an erection

Q: Does hurmat-e-musaaharah become established if a person does not get any movement/erection in his private part, but he is not sure if he gets any arousing feeling in his private part. He was also feeling scared and in his heart he had thoughts like he was feelimg lust however he did not get any erection/movement. He was scared that he will cause hurmat. He did not get any sexual thoughts (which may have triggered lust).

A: If he is not sure whether he had an erection, then hurmat-e-musaaharat will not be established. However, in future he should exercise caution in this regard.

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