Islam Q&A write:
Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
If the wali refused to let a woman marry a man whose religious commitment and character are good, then guardianship passes to the next closest male relative on the father’s side, then the next closest and so on.
I'm trying to understand how we would know if we are in a situation where this applies, as opposed to a situation where the woman should accept her wali's refusal and find another husband.
Question: How can we determine if a wali is refusing marriage to a man whose religious commitment and character are good?
