    Incest is sexual intercourse between closely related people, so it depends on what you mean by 'closely related'. Most countries allow marriage between cousins, and there is no significant increase in the probability of genetic problems for the children, unless the practice of marrying cousins is repeated in subsequent generations. The religion of the participants is irrelevant.

    No, but having sex with them is.

    But lots of non-Muslims do it too.

    Millions of deformed children left on rooftops to die in shame can't be wrong.

    It's not incest when non-Muslims marry their cousins so why would it be?

    Cousins are people who have the same Grandparents.

    So, one of each of their parents are siblings

    Like ... ''My Father and your Mother are Brother and Sister.

    In some cultures that's ''too closely related'' to marry

    and in others it isn't .. that's just how it works, sometimes.

    Most cultures allow marriage between cousins.

    It's only incest if it's between siblings or a parent and child or grandparent and child.
