In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is permissible for you to marry your maternal grandfathers step brothers daughter. Allah Ta’ala mentions in the Quran after mentioning all those females with whom marriage is not permissible (Muharramaat): [i]

وأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَا وَرَاءَ ذَلِكُمْ

And lawful to you are all others (females) beyond these (Muharramaat) 


And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
