Marrying one's real sister's milk brother

Q: Is it permissible for a girl to get married to her real sister's milk brother?

A lady named "Aisha" breastfed Muhammad who is her son, and Fathima - who is Aishas sisters daughter.

Fathima has a sister named Zainub, who has not been breastfed by her Khala (Aisha).

Can Muhammad, who is Fathimas milk brother, marry Zainub - who is his milk sister's real sister?

A: Yes.

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