Q. If a woman remarried and adopts a female baby and breast feeds her. Does the adopted father become her mahram too?


A. If a couple adopts a child and the wife breastfeeds the adopted child under the age of two years, the adopted child becomes Mahram to the wife and the husband.

The same is applicable to a woman who adopts and breastfeeds a child after remarrying i.e. the new husband will be Mahram to the adopted child.
