Islam/marriage to father's cousin?

I would like to point out that this answer is wrong.This is because no where in the ayah given does it show that cousins cannot be married and quite the contrary it is this very aayah that proves otherwise and which many prominent Islamic scholars hold out for saying that cousin marriages are allowed in Islam.Cousins are just like other unrelated men and women for each other.Please understand the ayah's true meaning and what it implies before putting it up as a proof and making people ignorant about what it actually conveys.

Asslamu Alaikum wrb. I think the brother was asking about marrying his father's cousin which is an cousin-aunt if I may say so. So the answer given to him is not related to his question. Thank you.
