I'm a Muslim girl and want to marry a Muslim boy who is following Islam properly. So I spoke with my guardian (الولي), that is my father, and he refused the proposal and does not want to meet his family because of difference in caste, as we are jatt and they are mirza. Is cast an important part in Nikkah?
In Islam everyone is equal so caste has no importance.
There is a hadith: "An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab"
If you say that one should not marry of a particular caste then you are saying that you are better than them and that makes you ignorant.
“He will not enter Hellfire who has the weight of a seed of faith in his heart and he will not enter Paradise who has the weight of a seed of arrogance in his heart.”
The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. A good Muslim will help you become a better Muslim and Insha'Allah enter Jannah. Their caste will not help your children learn about their religion.
Hadith (Reported by Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
A woman is married for four reasons: her property, lineage, beauty and religion. You should better marry the religious one otherwise you will lose.
Sister, caste should never become a hindrance for a marriage.
If the boy has been sent as your partner, then you will get married to him. In Sha Allah
The entire purpose of there being different people, tribes, colors, cultures, casts, families etc... So that we all can know one another and intermingle and worship Allah.
Allah said in Surah al-Hujurat 49:14 =
O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you nations and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.
The Prophet himself married with women from other cultures and races and tribes. All the early Muslims did the same.
To stop people from marrying one another because of being different is haraam and anti-social.
It's a polluted misguided belief that Islam came eradicate.
If we look Islamic Sharia their is a term"kahfu" means that one should prefer to marry within their own cast after that he can go for other cast but they should be equal in all aspects. History has witnessed marrying in other cast has not standed long time, their are always conflicts as in every cast their are different atmosphere and it is difficult for other cast to make their adjustment.
