My half sister (from the same father but the same mother) has a daughter whom I would like to marry. Is she halal to me or haram

    Among those who are prohibited to you according (4:23) are "... your sister's daughters" and there's no difference between a sister from the same mother or an other wife of your father! You couldn't even marry the daughter of your sister's daughters as they are prohibited by lineage.

    How's she your half sister if you have the same father and mother?

  • @Sayyid well i think the confusion is that non-Muslims may call them half sister or half brother while in Islam they are clearly considered as sister and brother unless they are bastards!

NO you can not. Because a half sister (a sister with whom one has only one parent in common) is treated exactly as a (normal) sister in this case ( in Islam). And I think this is commonly known among the Muslim community.
