Is it permissible to marry mother-in-laws sister?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Dear Sir

Assalamu Aalaikum My Age is 50 and married , living with my Wife and 2 Children. My wife’s Mother’s sister ( ie My mother in law’s sister) is become widow and her age is 52. She is in Menopause ( menstrual periods already stopped ).Having one son.

Is it allowed in Islam to marry her by me to take care of her . No objection from my wife for the marriage.

Please answer

Regards Bathivutheen

Answer

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salฤmu โ€˜alaykum wa-rahmatullฤhi wa-barakฤtuh.

In principle, it is not permissible to gather two women in one marriage who are aunt and niece to each other. Accordingly, it is not permissible for you to marry your wifeโ€™s maternal aunt.[i]

And Allah Taโ€™ฤla Knows Best
