Is it lawful to marry neice
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum 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:
With reference to my question, "Is it possible to marry with a girl who is the niece of the groom by relation." let me clear out the relation.
Bride is the grand daughter of sister of groom's mother, hence the groom is the uncle of bride. and the groom wanted to marry with the girl. now clearify it.
(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.)
Is it lawful to marry niece
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Although oneís motherís sister is considered a Ďmehramí relationship in Shariah, oneís motherís sisterís daughters or grand-daughters are not Ďmehramí and thus it would be lawful for one to seek to marry oneís motherís sisterís daughters or grand-daughters if one wished to do so.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahís Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
