Ruling on a father kissing his daughter

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible for a man to kiss his daughter when she has grown up and has passed the age of puberty, whether she is married or not and whether the kissing is on her cheek or mouth etc.? If he kisses her, what is the ruling?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

There is nothing wrong with a man kissing his daughter, whether she is big or small, without desire, so long as that is on her cheek, if she is grown up, because of the report that Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq (may Allaah be pleased with him) kissed his daughter ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) on the cheek.

 And because kissing on the mouth may lead to provocation of sexual desire, so it is better and safer not to do that. Similarly the daughter may kiss her father on the nose or head without desire. But if there is any feeling of desire then it is haraam for either of them to do that, so as to avoid fitnah (temptation) and ward off the means that may lead to evil actions. And Allaah is the source of strength.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
