[Q-ID0042] Can I marry my brothers ex-wife?

QUESTION:

Peace be upon you. My question goes like this: can a person marry his brothers wife after the brother divorced the woman? Thanks.

ANSWER:

Once she is divorced and completed her waiting period he may marry her, this is on the basis that there is no other relationship between them that prohibits their marriage e.g. being nursed from the same woman.

Allāh knows best.
