Question

 

Can I marry my father’s brother’s son in Islam?

 

 

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

 

Answer:

 

Allah says in the Qur’an: {Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father’s sisters, your mother’s sisters, your brother’s daughters, your sister’s daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives’ mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in.} [al-Nisā, 22]

 

These are the groups that are unlawful for a man to marry. Marrying a cousin, the daughter of an uncle or aunt, is permissible. Our prophet Sayyidunā Muhammad (saw) married his cousin Zaynab Bint Jahsh (RA) and Fatima (RA) the daughter of our Prophet (SAW) married her cousin ʿAli (RA).
