Ask an Alim



Assalam o Alaikum!

Start with the name of Allah Almighty who is most merciful and beneficent. I have a question about marriage, for Ustad Noman Ali khan. My question is regrading me, Can i marry my mother’s first cousin? Is it allowed in islam? My mother and my mother’s first cousin have separate fathers and mothers and they both never have milk by same other. Please Give your explanation about it. Jazak Allah


Assalamu alaykum

Sorry, Ustad Noman Ali khan is not in here.

Regardless, yes you can marry your mother’s first cousin. Simple explanation is that she is not your mahram, hence its ok to marry such a person.

Good luck,
