A breastfeeding woman forgetting and her two sisters testifying
A wet nurse forgot that she had breast-fed a certain baby, but her two sisters were witnesses and swore that they saw her breast-feeding that baby
five times or even more. Does this testimony establish this breastfeeding relationship?
Breastfeeding is a matter which all women are familiar with and it is proven by the testimony of a trustworthy woman. Therefore, if this woman's two sisters testified that their sister had breast-fed a certain baby five times of breastfeeding or more during the first two years of the baby's life, breastfeeding would be proven, and this child would be considered this woman's son by breastfeeding, provided that these two women or one of them were trustworthy.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
