Foster Relationships Clearification

Q:

Assalam o alaikum I have a foster sister with whom I have shared Milk from her mother. In my Knowledge, She is like a sister to me and Is Mehram So I cannot marry her. What I want to ask is that the other relations (her sisters and her neices (sister’s daughters)) are those also Mehram for me and I cannot Marry them?? Regards.

A:

Assalamu alaykum

The woman who nursed you as a baby, is your mother and all her children and grandchildren are your Mahram i.e. your Brother and Sister. That means you cannot marry any one of them.

Good luck
