Is it permissible for my brother, whom I had suckled, to conclude a marriage contract between his daughter and my son?

Is it permissible for my brother, whom I had suckled, to conclude a marriage contract between his daughter and my son?

Answer:
Such marriage is impermissible since one`s nephew in this situation is considered an uncle to one`s daughter; consequently, he is the brother of her father by suckling. In such cases, the people in question should go to court to prove the suckling.

This answer was collected from the official government Iftaa Department of Jordan.
