f:283 -    Marriage with cousin
Country : India,
Name : Abdul Muqtadir
Question:     Can marriage be performed with the son/daughter of the father's sister?  Is such a match permitted?


............................................................................
Answer:     As per the Shariah, marriage with son/daughter of the father's sister is permissible and allowed.  After describing the Mahram relatives (with whom marriage is impermissible) Almighty Allah says:

………thus hath Allah ordained (prohibitions) against you: except for these, all others are lawful.. Surah Nisa (4:24)

Son/daughter of the father's sister are not included in the Mahram relatives.  Thus, marriage with them is permissible.  


And Allah Most High knows best.
