What is the ruling on marrying two paternal cousins at the same time?
It is not permissible to marry two sisters at the same time, because Allah (Exalted be He) mentioned among the women forbidden for a man to marry:
...and two sisters in wedlock at the same time, except for what has already passed
It is also forbidden to marry a woman and her paternal aunt or her maternal aunt at the same time.
Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said,
“Do not be married to a woman and her paternal aunt or a woman and her maternal aunt at the same time.”
(Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
Al-Bukhari reported the same Hadith on the authority of
As for marrying a woman and her paternal cousin at the same time, this is permissible as the basic ruling is for the permissibility of this, and there is no evidence that necessitates it being forbidden.
