    Default Are you allowed to marry your mother's cousin?


    I know that in Islam you are forbidden to marry your mother's sister. But, is it permissible to marry your mother's cousin, who is younger than you (Your maternal grandfather's step-sister's daughter)?

    Please advice me on this.

    May Allah guide us all in the correct path.

    Asalaamu alaikum. Regarding your question i have just asked a scholar and he has confirmed that it is permissable for you to marry her.

    And Allah knows best in all matters

    Yes, it is permissible. Neither our own cousins, nor our parents' cousins, are in the list of people Allah has forbidden us to marry.

    Also, see this:

    Your motherís cousin is not a mahram for your mother, let alone for you. It is permissible for him to marry you, as you are not a mahram for him.

    Those who bear the Throne, and all who are round about it, glorify the praises of their Lord and believe in Him and ask forgiveness for those who believe (saying): "Our Lord, You have encompassed all things in mercy and knowledge, so forgive those who have repented and followed Your way and protect them from the punishment of Hellfire.
    Our Lord, and admit them to Gardens of Eden which You have promised them and whoever was righteous among their fathers, their spouses and their offspring. Indeed, it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
    And protect them from the evil consequences [of their deeds]. And he whom You protect from evil consequences that Day - You will have given him mercy. And that is the great attainment." (40:7-9)
    And you will see the angels surrounding the Throne, glorifying the praises of their Lord. And it will be judged between them in truth, and it will be said, "Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds!" (39:75)

    Salaam


    Caliph Ali ra was cousin of Prophet Muhammed pbuh . So , if he could marry Fatima , daughter of the Prophet pbuh , looks like marrying mother's cousin is also permissible. But it's better to ask a Mufti to explain the relationship - grandfather's step-sister's daughter - was father or mother same or they had same foster mother etc.

    related verse :

    Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your fathers sisters, your mothers sisters, your brothers daughters, your sisters daughters, your foster mother who gave you suck, your foster milk suckling sisters, your wives mothers, your step daughters under your guardianship, born of your wives to whom you have gone in - but there is no sin on you if you have not gone in them (to marry their daughters), - the wives of your sons who (spring) from your own loins, and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed; verily, Allah is OftForgiving, Most Merciful.
