Can the stepchildren marry each other?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Asalamualaikum My question is quite complicated so please read it carefully . One of my friend (ABC) father(FFF) died long back and so his mother(MMM) married another man(xyz) . Now this man(xyz) was also married before and his wife(RRR) died .(In short both MMM and XYZ are widow) This man(xyz) had one daughter(PQR) with his first wife(RRR) . Now my friend(ABC) is going to marry this girl (PQR) . Is this marrage valid or haram . Jazakllah


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


As-salāmu ‘alaykumwa-rahmatullāhiwa-barakātuh.


It is permissible for ABC to marry PQR.[1]
