Marrying one’s ex-wife’s daughter

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is it possible to marry an ex-wife’s daughter? I know a man that married a woman 13 years older and she never told him she has a daughter almost his age. They are not together any longer and he wants to propose to the daughter. Is this permissible considering he didn’t know this? He didn’t have intercourse with her since finding out as he was very hurt and shocked.

A: He cannot marry the daughter.

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