Question asked by .
Answered by Dr. Shehzad Saleem

Is it allowed to marry the son of one’s aunt? Will it cause any genetic problems in the kids?


The sharī’ah has not prohibited marriage with cousins. However, if it is deemed medically inadvisable in some cases, then of course one may abstain from such marriages. Therefore, in this regard, you should form an opinion on the basis of a qualified doctor.
