Islam/step brother


I want to know the description about step brother. Who is step brother in the rules of Islam actually? Is that from mother side or father or both?

Allah hafej

Bismillahir-Rahmanir-Rahim (In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)


Dear Brother,

Whomsoever has either father or mother in common is your step brother.
It is from both sides.
Lets say your father married a women - her children will be your step brother.
The terminology is very tricky. If you have a real practical stance - then i can give you an exact answer.
