Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


1. A father in law is a mahram to his daughter-in-law, just as a father is a mahram to his daughter.

2. A father can kiss his daughter to bless her.

3. A father in law should avoid kissing his daughter-in-law, as there is a fear of fitnah. If precaution is not exercised, such fitnah may result in a permanent breakdown of nikah between his son and daughter-in-law, based on the laws of hurmatul musaharah.

4. A mother can kiss her adult son to bless him.


And Allah knows best
