Relations considered haram for marriage in Islam

Islam has given clear-cut instructions with regards to marriage and finding a halal relation in this regard is the subject Allah has specifically mentioned in the Quran. 

Below is a list of relations that are prohibited (haram) for nikah, mentioned in Surah Nisa verse number 23:

1) Mothers

2) Daughters

3) Sisters

4) Father's sisters (aunts)

5) Mother's sisters (aunts)

6) Brother's daughters (nieces)

7) Sister's daughters (nieces)

8) Women who have breastfed/nursed you (milk mothers)

9) Milk sisters (girls who were breastfed/nursed by the same woman who breastfed you)

10) Mothers-in-law (wives' mothers)

11) Step daughters (born of wives with whom you have had sexual intercourse. But step daughters of your wives with whom you have not had sexual intercourse are allowed to married as Allah says there is no sin upon you in this case)

12) Daughter in law (wife of your sons who are from your own loin - biological son)

13) Marrying two sisters simultaneously

Surah Nisa verse 23: "Prohibited to you [for marriage] are your mothers, your daughters, your sisters, your father's sisters, your mother's sisters, your brother's daughters, your sister's daughters, your [milk] mothers who nursed you, your sisters through nursing, your wives' mothers, and your step-daughters under your guardianship [born] of your wives unto whom you have gone in. But if you have not gone in unto them, there is no sin upon you. And [also prohibited are] the wives of your sons who are from your [own] loins, and that you take [in marriage] two sisters simultaneously, except for what has already occurred. Indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful."
