What does non-mahram mean?

Some people here were calling me non-mahram or something.


Because I asked this question about this guy that I like, and that he talks to me, and people here said it's haram for two non mahrams to fraternise with each other.

    A non-mahram is someone who you can marry, someone who you should cover yourself in front of - whereas if you are Mahram to someone, you cannot marry them - your brother, father, uncle, etc.

    A non-mahram is someone you could get married to. A mahram is someone you can't get married to.

    Example of mahram: your brother

    Example of non-mahram: your cousin (I know some people find that disgusting, but it's not that disgusting to me)

    Hope this helped!

    Your sister,

    So let me break it down for you :)

    1. permanent or blood mahrams with whom you become mahram by a blood relationship:

    1. father, grandfather, great-grandfather and so on;

    2. brother;

    3. son, grandson, great-grandson;

    4. uncle, parents' uncle, grandparents' uncle and so on;

    5. nephew, grandnephew, great-grandnephew and so on;

    2. in-law mahrams with whom you become mahram by marrying someone:

    1. father-in-law;

    2. son-in-law;

    3. step-father (mother's husband) if their marriage is consummated;

    4. step-son (husband's son) if her marriage is consummated;

    3. rada or milk-suckling mahrams with whom you become mahram because of being nursed by a woman. When a woman acts as a wet nurse (that is, she breast feeds an infant that is not her own child) for a certain amount of time under certain conditions, she becomes the child's rada mother and all said about blood mahrams applies here, like rada father/mother, rada sister/brother, rada aunt/uncle and so on. In English these can be referred to as milk brother, milk-mother, etc...

    I hope I that's answers your question. You can speak to any guy-mahrams above and also if you would to preform Hajj you would have to take a Mahram. :)

    Peace And Love...........................................
