Can step-children marry each other


Nasihah (Advice): A sudden glance


Jareer Bin Abdullah Radhiyallahu Anhu reports: “I asked Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam about the sudden glance (that is cast on the face of a non-Mahram). He commanded me to turn my eyes away.” (Muslim)




Question and Answer:


  1. A woman is divorced with a daughter. She has remarried a divorced man who has a son. Can the (previously) divorced man’s son marry the (previously) divorced woman’s daughter?


  1. Step children are non-Mahrams to one another. Hence, it is permissible for the stepfather’s son to marry the stepmother’s daughter. (Hindiyyah 6/472)
