  1. “Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters…”

    [al-Nisa’ 4:23].

    It's impermissible.

    • When the ayah says "mother's sisters" it is referring to blood sisters, i.e. aunts. Not step-sisters.

      To the questioner: I really don't understand your explanation. Does this woman have the same mother or father as your mother? If so, then she is your aunt and you cannot marry her. If not, then you can.

      However, I encourage you to broaden your scope and to find someone outside your family. Why should you marry such a close family member? It's not healthy. The world is a big place. Surely you can find someone else. As for your feelings of "love", this is only attraction based on proximity. You see her often, so you developed an infatuation.

      • Salam Wael,

        His question is this: His mother and her half sister share the same father but not the same mother. Can he marry his mother's half sister considering that she doesn't share the same mom as his mother?

        As to what he said: His grandfather married twice, his mother is from the first marriage, his love interest is the daughter from his grandfather's second marriage. His love interest and his mother share the same father.

        • I am terrible at understanding these things. I can also never solve those little puzzles where the pieces join together, then you have to separate them.
