Stepfather’s brothers

Fatwaa ID: 2008

Assalamualaikum wrwb Mufti sahab

Are Step Father‘s brothers Mahram to a Step Daughter?

JazakAllah Khairan

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

The stepfather’s brothers are non-mahrams. The laws of hijaab and inter-gender interactions are fully applicable.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
