Step daughters

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have two daughters from a previous marriage. Is my Husband their (stepfather) a Mahram to my daughters? Is he allowed to Hug them?


A: Yes.

On account of the abundance of fitnah and wrong that is prevalent we strongly advise against this type of close contact.

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