It is not permissible to marry two sisters at the same time. This is clearly mentioned in the Qur’an, “And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.” [Qur’an 4:23] Also, it is not permissible for a man and woman to live together as a couple without conducting a proper marriage. Allah mentions in the Qur’an, “And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse.” [Qur’an 4:42] He also says, “And do not approach unlawful sexual intercourse. Indeed, it is ever an immorality and is evil as a way.” [Qur’an 17:32]
