Sister’s granddaughter marrying brother’s son

Fatwaa ID: 1981

Salam brother,
Question from a sister :
Is it permissible for a sisters granddaughter to marry the brothers son.
So there is a sister and a brother.
Sister is much older to her brother and she has a granddaughter and the brother is much younger to his sister who has a son.
So is it allowed for these two to get married.
Sorry I am confused myself re. the above issue.

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. A sister’s granddaughter may marry her grandmother’s brother’s son, also known as her first cousin once removed. They are non-mahrams and thus marriageable kin.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
