SPECIAL MESSAGE TO MUSLIM BROTHERS & SISTERS ON MARRIAGE(Sheikh Isa Ali Pantami)


This is verbatim verdict from Their
Eminence, Shaykh Muhammad
Saleh Al-Uthaymeen and Shaykh
Dr Ahmad Al-Rashid (RH).
Enjoy reading
Abû Hurayrah relates that the
Prophet (PBUH) says: “If a suitor
approaches whose religion and
character please you, then let him
marry. Otherwise, there will be a lot
of immorality and corruption in the
world.” (Sunan al-Tirmidhî (1084) –
authenticated by Shaykh Albânî).
Bn Uthaymeen (RH) stated that,
Allah alone knows the EVIL that
befalls society because women are
prevented form getting married or
have their marriages unreasonably
postponed. We can easily see its
affect on morality when we look at
the state of affairs in the world
around us. The Prophet (SAW),
with the words above, warned us
about these negative
consequences. The hadîth
addresses to the woman’s
guardians. A guardian who refuses
to allow a woman to marry a
suitable man of good religion and
character who she wishes to marry
is, in obstructing her from marriage,
compromising his right to act as
her guardian. As a consequence,
guardianship will be transferred to
the next in line for that duty among
her relatives.
Sheikh Muhammad bN `Uthaymîn
added the following: “If a woman’s
guardian prevents her from
marrying a suitable partner of good
religion and character, then her
guardianship is transferred to the
next in line for guardianship among
her relatives. If all of her guardians
– in succession – refuse, as if
usually the case in these matters,
then guardianship transfers to the
Islamic judge who will facilitate the
woman’s marriage. It is the duty of
the judge to get the woman
married once the matter comes
before him and he knows of her
guardians’ refusal. This is because
the judge has general jurisdiction
over the matter once the specific
jurisdiction of her blood relatives is
annulled.
Finally, by taking the matter to
court, the woman will be enforcing
the Prophet’s command: “If a suitor
approaches whose religion and
character please you, then let him
marry. Otherwise, there will be a lot
of immorality and corruption in the
world”. He, ” Sheikh Muhammd b.
`Uthaymîn also added that:
It is high time that women are
emboldened to appeal to the courts
when their fathers refuse to let
them marry men of commensurate
character and religion, so the
judge can say to their fathers:
“Either let your daughter get
married, or I will marry her off or
appoint someone who will.” It is the
daughter’s right to appeal to the
courts if her father refuses to let her
get married.
This is a God-given right.
Therefore, it is high time we reach
that stage where this is the norm.
Unfortunately, most young women
are too shy to do that. And Allah is
the one who we beseech for
success. End
Allah ya bawa kowa salihi/salihar
abokin zama a duniya da a lahira.
Allah ka yi dukkan salihan bayinka
gaatan samun zurriya dayyiba,…
