Answered by Ustadha Umm Abdullah
Can someone marry his own sons widow?
In Islam, there are certain relatives that become permanently forbidden to marry. Allah Ta’ala mentions each of these relatives in Surah Nisa’, among those, He says;
وَحَلَائِلُ أَبْنَائِكُمُ الَّذِينَ مِنْ أَصْلَابِكُمْ
“The wives of your sons who were born of you(the wives of your biological sons).”
From the above verse, it has been established that marriage with the wife of one’s son is forbidden.
Only Allah Ta’ala knows best
