Wife’s Stepmother

Wife’s Stepmother


My Father-in-law had two wives and he has now passed away. Can I marry my wife’s step-mother?


In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for you to marry your wife’s stepmother

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
