17 Women Who Are Forbidden to Marry

Marriage is the Sunnah of the Messenger that will bring a great reward if done. But not with the following women. Allah swt and His messenger forbade men to marry ten of these women forever.

Instead of reward, marriage with these forbidden women will bring disaster. Not only is it forbidden by religion, but this marriage will have an impact on the health of the offspring who will be born.

Muslims certainly need to know who the women who are forbidden to marry. Given the number of cases of marriage that are suddenly horrendous because it is considered unusual. So who are the women who are forbidden to marry men?

Allah SWT strictly prohibits men from marrying women because of a nasab relationship. This is explained in the qalam of Allah QS. An-Nisaa’ : 23

1. His mother. It was the woman who gave birth to him. Including grandmothers, both from the father’s side and from the mother’s side and so on upwards.
