Fatwa ID: 04736
Answered by: Mufti Muhammad Adnan
Is my half-sister is mahram to me or not?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
“Forbidden to you (for marriage) are: your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your fathers’ sisters, your mothers’ sisters, your brothers’ daughters, your sisters’ daughters” [an-Nisa’ 4:23]
A sibling that you share as a parent is a mahram and would fall under the category of sister/brother.
Only Allah knows best
