Marrying one's daughter or step-daughter

Q: Can a husband marry his stepdaughter or even his own daughter and the marriage still be valid with his wife?

A: It is not permissible for him to marry his own daughter or his step-daughter i.e. his wife's daughter. The nikaah will not be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
