ssalaam alaikum, I have read that if someone touches the Mahrams like father or mother with desire then hurmat musaahrah will apply. 1. How will we define desire incase of women since it is difficult to know if the women has desire on not? 2.After reading about Hurmat Musaaharah whenever i touch my father, i get some feeling in my heart but there was no bad intention before touching.I am worried that does Hurmat musaahrah take place if a person had no intention to touch the Mahrams with desire but felt desire upon touching?Please reply JazakAllah

Hurmat-e Musaharat can not occur between Mahram relatives. It can only occur between non-Mahram people.

And Allah knows best.
