A Man Being A Mahram To His Stepdaughter


After divorce , does the father still remain mahram to the step daughter or does it fall away?


The Fuqaha have stated that by virtue of a marriage which is followed with intercourse, the children of the wife from a previous marriage become Haraam upon the husband. This impermissibility of not being able to marry the wife’s children (from a previous marriage) remains forever, even though the couple (husband and wife) may be divorced.
