Now updated: Ramadan calendar -

Assalamulaykum. I want to marry my cousin's son who is my mother's sister's son's son. He is a year older than me. My mother said its not permissable as he is my brother because its her sister's grandson? Help please! Jazakallah khair and please forgive me if i said anything wrong in that as i do not know.

strange, considering alot of muslims marry their first cousin. so this guy is a 2nd cousin or a first cousin once removed? i can never remember how the labeling works. technically it is allowed, but probably not the best thing for the gene pool.

Yeah, that is fine. If you can marry the aunt's son (your cousin), then why not her grandson? Your mother seems confused. As far as I know, there is nothing in Islam forbidding such a marriage. He is not a mahram to you. (You'd have to wear hijab in front of him, etc).

وعليكم السلام و رحمة الله وبركاته
