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 uncle’s daughter. However, from a spiritual point of view if you will be more attracted to your wife’s mother than the wife, then you should reconsider the issue seriously. A wife is meant to safeguard ones chastity. In this case if the marriage will bring you more closer to the woman you used to fantasize about, that will be detrimental to your ruhaniyyah.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
