Q: I have some questions about hurmat musaharah.

1. Is it established between a mother and daughter?

2. Is it established if one has wet dreams about incest or a sexual dream that has mahrams?

3. Is hurmat cancelled if parents remarry and sincere repentance is made? 

4. Lust is a strong sexual desire. If I don't feel a strong desire but I feel some type of lustful feeling that I try my best to control inside my heart at the time of touching, is this hurmat musaharah?


1. No. Hurmat e musaaharah is established between males and females.

2. No. Through a dream, hurmat e musaaharah will not be established. 

3. No, hurmat e musaaharah cannot be cancelled.

4. Refer to

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