Q: My question is about a very sensitive issue. If a person touched the private parts of his uncle's wife while she was asleep with lust but afterwards he realized it is a great sin. What is the Islamic ruling for him? What should he do for tawba.

A: He cannot marry the children of his uncle. He should make sincere taubah and he should not go close at all in future.

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