Learn Fiqh with Al-Hakeem | Breastfeeding that affects marriage


In this Lecture, Sh. Assim Al-Hakeem discusses and explains the Breastfeeding that affects marriage. This course will cover all the practical rules that every Muslim, man or woman, should know, citing their bases in the Qur’an and the Sunnah.

Confirmation of breastfeeding


The testimony of 1 woman known to have integrity is sufficient to prove breastfeeding, because it is done in private. Such testimony is important because Islam prohibits marriage between milk brothers and sisters.



Breastfeeding forbids marriages like the blood relationship, with conditions. The relationship that created by breastfeeding entails two rulings, one causing prohibitions and another causing permissibility.
