Can I marry my sister-in-law(saali) after she finishes her iddah on her husbands death


My sister-in-law’s(saali) husband is dead… and my wife is still alive… I can marry my sister-in-law(saali)… now after 4 months and 10 days


Walikum salam

Following is the rulling of Ayatullah Sistani

Ruling 2409. If a person marries a woman, be it in a permanent or temporary marriage, he cannot marry her sister as long as she is married to him.
