Kindly request you to help me clarifying this difficulty 1. Please let me know if a mother remains a mother after the puberty of adopted son? Or she’ll become non mahram?
2. The real daughter can maintain a blood brother/sister relation or she will become non-mahram too?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

(Fatwa: 1210/1173/L=9/1438)


(1) Mutabanna (an adopted son) is not in place of real son. Hence after he becomes adult and the child is not mahram of the woman who has adopted him then the adopted woman will be like a strange woman for him and it shall be mandatory for her to observe purdah from him.

(2) No! the adopted child is not in place of real son.

Allah knows Best!
