Is My Half-Sister Is Mahram to Me or Not

Fatwa ID: 04736

Answered by: Mufti Muhammad Adnan

 

Question

 

Is my half-sister is mahram to me or not?

 

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

 

Answer

 

“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.
