Question Details


Question: Assalam o Alicum Sheikh Ahmad Kutty I sent you this question numerous times earlier and I visit this website everyday to see whether a response has been posted to my question. I understand that you are busy but I would truly appreciate your time and your answer. Jazak Allah. May Allah reward you for this! I would like to know according to Quran and Hadith what are the conditions (number of sucklings and age) that create a fostering relationship (mahram) and forbids marriage through breastfeeding/suckling? Is this relationship formed even when the number of sucklings is unknown? What are the most preferred views by most Islamic Scholars on these issues? Please clarify. Jazak Allah.
