Marrying one’s cousin

Q: I have two uncles. My grandmother has breastfed my elder uncle’s first child. Now my parents want me to marry younger uncle’s daughter. So, is it permissible according to Islam as my grandmother has breastfed my eldest uncle’s first child.


A: Yes it is permissible for you to get married to your cousin.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
