  • who are your mahrams?

    I don't think I have a mahram. But I'm not sure. I'm the only Muslim in my family so I don't know who would classify as one for me???

    I always thought a mahram was a male relative, regardless if they are Muslim or not.

    I'm probably wrong though

        Your close male relatives can be non-Muslim, but still be mahram.
        Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

          wali (guardian when you get married) has to be muslim but not mahram

            I think you confused Wali (guardian) with mahram.

            A mahram is a relative whom you can never marry. Ex. fathers, brothers, and everyone else szl described above. Even if your father isn't muslim, he is your mahram because you're blood relatives.

            A wali is your guardian who facilitates your marriage. They have to be a male Muslim (usually the father). If no male in your family is Muslim, the local imam can be your wali.

              Seems like you have got a very detailed response above by the brother to explain.
              I write novels for posts. Beware. :mujahida:

              Ummah Forum seems pretty black and white. Was thinking of offering Skittles as Dawah to introduce a rainbow.

                  Slightly off topic, can a man hug and kiss his mother in law? Her being the mahram of course.

                  Do not invest your hopes in anyone but Allah and do not fear anything but the consequences and repercussions of your sins!

                    Question

                    Can a 25 year old son-in-law hug his 58 year old mother-in-law? Can they handshake each other?

                    Answer

                    A son-in-law is a Mahram to his mother-in-law and there is no observance of Hijaab between them. It is also important to point out that if the son-in-law or mother-in-law experiences passion while hugging one another, that will fall in the category of incest which will result in her daughter’s marriage being invalidated. It is, therefore, important for the mother-in-law and son-in-law to conduct themselves in a modest way.

                    and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

                      Jazakallah Khairan, so the key words are "if they experience passion"
