His grandfather’s daughter is also his paternal uncle’s wife

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:
Am I classified as a Muhram for the wife of my uncle after being divorced ( she is originally my grand father daughter )
.Jazaka Allahu Khira.
(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.

Your grandfather’s daughter must necessarily be your maternal aunt (khaalah) or paternal aunt (‘ammah). If she is the daughter of your father’s father, she is your paternal aunt, and if she is the daughter of your mother’s father, then she is your maternal aunt. If she is your aunt, whether the sister of your father or the sister of your mother, then you are a mahram for her, regardless of whether she is married to your uncle or not. It seems from the question that she is the daughter of your maternal grandfather (your mother’s father).

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.
