Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Is incest same as having physical relationship with own blood or zina? Does it include only feeling and fondling with mothers or sisters chest and lower leg (not the pubic region) or complete intercourse with same blood relation of opposite sex? Does feeling mothers and sisters chest and lower leg (uncovered at night) a major sin?

Incest is a worse and more serious sin. And feeling mahrams or non mahrams private parts is same as Zina.

Porn is haram, masturbation is haram, zina is haram...

Do you not have mother or sister whilst writing this?

Thank you for your questions.

What has been described in the question is filthy, a sin and transgression that a person must repent for if he did it intentionally. While it is not sexual intercourse, such molestation is greatly evil, especially if done to one's family members for the sake of pleasure. It may ruin the victim and the offender.

O Allah protect the Muslim men and women and the believing men and women!

Dear brother, Allah says:

“Say: 'O My slaves who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah, verily Allah forgives ALL sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” [Soorah az-Zumar (39): 53]

The Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said: “Allaah, Blessed and Exalted is He, says, ‘O son of Adam, as long as you call on Me, I shall forgive you of what you have done, and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if your sins were to reach up to the clouds in the sky, and then you were to ask for My forgiveness, I would forgive you and think nothing of it. O son of Adam, even if you were to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, and then you were to meet Me after death, not worshipping anything besides Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as the earth.’” [Tirmidhi]

Therefore no matter how great the sin indeed Allah is still the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

The person should seek Allah's forgiveness, and promise never ever to do it again so as to not destroy his life and the life of his family members.

The person should get married as soon as possible or fast to restrain himself from ever committing this shameful act. He should avoid being alone with his mother or sister or be with them at night so as to never repeat what he had done.

He should also do good deeds, because good deeds wipe out evil ones.

No, what was described is not the same as incest or sexual intercourse, about which Allah says:

"The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment." (Surah Nur, Ayah 2)

This is also a reminder to the parents to follow the teachings of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

Hadith Abi Dau'd-, Narrated As-Saburah The Prophet said: "Order your children to pray at the age of seven. And beat them [lightly] if they do not do so by the age of ten. And separate them in their bedding."

Kids may experiment sexually otherwise. May Allah protect us all.

In general it is fine to be alone with ones mother and sister as this is natural and allowed, and we don't want Muslims to behave and think in an unnatural way.

However for the particular brother if he fears the possibility of what has happened being repeated if he were to stay alone, then he should avoid it in my humble opinion.
