Assalam alaikum,
I am a Muslim Brother.

1) If my brother and sister were to breast-feed while under the age of two from a foster mother, will it be permissible for me to marry there foster mother?

2) If my brother and sister were to breast-feed while under the age of two from a foster mother, will it be permissible for me to marry there foster sister?

Wa Alaikum Assalaam,

الجواب و بالله التوفيق

  1. There will be no foster connection between the woman your brother and sister nursed from and you. This woman is their foster mother, but nothing to you. As such, it will be permissible for you to marry this woman. (Al Hidayah Vol. 2, Pg. 351, Maktaba Shirkiya Ilmiyah Multan).
  2. There will also be no foster connection between you and the foster sister of your brother and sister. While this girl/woman may be their foster sister, she is a stranger to you. Hence, you can marry her. (Al Hidayah Vol. 2, Pg. 351, Maktaba Shirkiya Ilmiyah Multan).
