Women and the Concept of Mahram in Islam

In the Muslim religion, the pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the five pillars of Islam. The others pillars are the profession of faith, the prayer, the fasting of the month of Ramadan, and the acquittal of the zakat. Umrah can’t able to perform without Mahram, as it is compulsory for women. However, Mahram is those man, that is never allowed to marry.

The following categories of male relatives are the Mahram for women such as father, grandfather, son, grandson, brother, uncle by mother and father, nephew. This can be for the following three reasons:

  1. Due to direct blood relationship.
  2. Due to the milk relationship.

The following categories of female relatives are the Mahram due to direct blood relationship such as:

1 – Mother, father’s mother and other direct parents on the ascending line.

2 – Daughters, granddaughters from the side of daughters and sons

3 – Native sisters and half-sisters by father and mother.

4 – Native sisters of the father, grandfather, and grandmother (from the side of the father) or other parents on the ascending line.

5 – Daughters of siblings and daughters of stepbrothers by father and mother

No one of these categories of female relatives is allowed to marry in any way. In Surah Nisa (23-Ayat). “Your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your aunts on the part of the father, your aunts on the part of the mother, the daughter of the brother and the daughter of the sister are forbidden to you”.

The following are the categories of relationships:

1 – Wives of the father, grandfathers from the direct parents on the ascending line, proceeding from the words such as” Do not marry the women on which your fathers were married. Somehow, this is a hateful deed and a bad way “(surah “Nisa”, 22-ayat).

2 – Daughters of wives and they were called stepdaughters – they are forbidden for the husbands of their mothers. It is said that ” your stepdaughters, who are under your protection, with mothers of whom you had intimacy” (Surah “Nisa”, 23-Ayat).

3 – Mothers of wives, mother-in-law and their direct parents on the ascending line, proceeding that “the mother of your wives is included in forbidden factor” (Surah “Nisa”, 23-Ayat).
