  • I'm not sure if this is commonly practiced among Muslims. However, marrying a cousin is a common practice in places where small groups of people live in close proximity and have infrequent contact with other populations. Around the world there are many small villages like this.

  • Yeah, but cousins are not near kin. Incest is only those close to you which is father, mother, brother, sister, aunt, uncle and grandparents.

  • Yeah because the prophet Mohamed is seen as the epitome of masculinity and he married his cousin so in some Islamic countries that's why they do cousin marriages, like Pakistan has 70% of its marriages being cousin marriages.
