حرمت عليكم أمهاتكم وبناتكم وأخواتكم وعماتكم وخالاتكم وبنات الاخ وبنات الاخت وأمهاتكم اللاتى أرضعنكم وأخواتكم من الرضاعة وأمهات نسآئكم وربائبكم اللاتى فى حجوركم من نسآئكم اللاتى دخلتم بهن فإن لم تكونوا دخلتم بهن فلا جناح عليكم وحلائل أبنآئكم الذين من أصلابكم وأن تجمعوا بين الاختين إلا ما قد سلف إن الله كان غفورا رحيما والمحصنات من النسآء إلا ما ملكت أيمانكم كتاب الله عليكم وأحل لكم ما وراء ذلكم (سورة النساء الآية 23-24)
