The Islamic state acts as the Wali for someone who does not have a Wali. In a non-muslim state, you should look for someone who has the qualifications of a qadi(judge) to act as your wali; a Mufti or Imam of a mosque will be a good choice. If you are unable to contact an Imam then you may ask any upright Muslim to act as your Wali. Note that the person you ...

Quran: Quran 4:19 O you who have believed, it is not lawful for you to inherit women by compulsion. And do not make difficulties for them in order to take [back] part of what you gave them unless they commit a clear immorality. And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them - perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good. ...

From Tafsir Al Qurtubi on 2:221 الخامسة ـ وٱختلف العلماء في منازل الأولياء وترتيبِهم؛ فكان مالكٌ يقول: أوّلهم البنون وإن سَفَلوا، ثم الآباء، ثم الإخوة للأب والأُم، ثم للأب، ثم بنو الإخوة للأب والأُمّ، ثم بنو الإخوة للأب، ثم الأجداد للأب وإن عَلَوْا، ثم العُمومة على ترتيب الإخوة، ثم بنوهم على ترتيب بني الإخوة وإن سَفلوا، ثم المولى ثم السلطان أو ...

A non-Muslim woman needs only a Muslim wali when she has no other wali from her family. Under normal circumstances, the wali should be of the same religion as the bride. I could not find any distinction on this specific matter based on schools of jurisprudence, but I could be wrong. The differences that I found were related to pillars (requirement of a wali ...

It would be prudent to get divorce before moving forward. This will terminate the nikah if it was valid and will not do any harm if it was invalid. The Hanafis recognize as valid a marriage when you are an adult and its with your consent, so according to them the marriage will be valid and obviously you would need divorce. The rest view the marriage as ...

The Hanafi school of thought has the view that an adult woman can carry out her own marriage, without the consent or involvement of a wali. They base it on the following verses of the Quran, arguing that the woman is given the right to contract her own marriage and the consent of the wali is not mentioned as conditional. (See Ahkam ul Quran by Al Jasas for ...

The condition of guardianship (wilayah) for marriage is a contested matter among jurists. The Maliki school contains two opinions wherein one stipulates that guardianship is a condition of the validity of marriage and one states that it is only recommended. The Shafii school holds the opinion of the obligation of guardianship. In the Hanafi school and ...

I would agree with @qidnar's Answer about the proofs. Now about the Madhabs (Mazhbas): among the 4 sunni schools, only abu Hanifa allowed a divorced woman to marry on her own, as she has experience with marriage and therefore should know what is good and the best for her! This is justification of the Hanafi Madhab for this, as an interpretation of this ...

I did some research on the matter and would like to share some of my findings with you: A father or a guardian (waly) should marry his daughter(s) or the woman he has been trusted to a righteous husband if she is willing to marry this man as stated in this hadith: "When someone whose religion and character you are pleased with proposes to (someone under ...

As Salamu Alikum, A woman has all the rights to choose a good husband for her as long as he's a Muslim. However, she cannot choose a Kafir as a husband. No one has the right to force a girl to marry anyone, but at the same time she does not have the right to get married without her guardian’s permission. The presence of the wali (guardian) is one of the ...

Firstly why are they asking for divorce when they say marriage was "haram" or void? Secondly permission of both the daughter and her father (wali) maybe required for marriage and since you are now both married and both accept each other happily then it is a sin and fitna on part of the guardian to try to subvert this institution of marriage. Also In ...

I need more information to answer this question. However, the question seems to indicate that the questioner wants to know whether she committed zina or not. I will address that point. The question states, May Allah forgive me as I am gaining knowledge as much as I can but I did not know the details of marriage then. We also never lived together because of ...

As said in my comment once married the walaya or wilaya (the guardianship) passes to the husband. The father or former wali is only significant in absence of the husband as a person of "trust"! This is based on verses such as: ...They both found her lord (i.e. her husband) at the door. ...- Translation of Muhsin khan(12:25) which means that the husband ...

The Qur'an in several verses clearly quote the necessity of a third party which gives permission for marriage, which is the wali: ... And do not marry polytheistic men [to your women] until they believe. ...(2:221) which is an order to the guardian of a lady not to give permission to marriage between her and a disbeliever! In my comment I've posted the ...

First I'll try to make things clear. Wali: Is the guardian of a lady. If alive the 1st and only choice is her father and after that the closest male relatives (but only if the father doesn't exist) such as brother or grandfather (the correct order of which is to be asked first needs to be checked as there are different opinions according madhhabs, see Who ...

Salaam It must be considered that Uthman was not killed by a single person, whom can be sentenced to death by the Islamic ruler. Massive revolution by the Muslims, ultimately, led to death of Uthman. Therefore, Imam Ali (PBHU) could not punish tens of thousands of revolutionary people. A revolution that Uthman himself was not blameless in creating it. In ...

The waly of a former non-Muslim lady who converted must be a Muslim. She should chose him and he can't be from among the two necessary witnesses for the marriage. Usually people in such cases chose the imam of a mosque as the hadith says: Aisha and Ibn Abbas said: “The Messenger of Allah said: 'There is no marriage except with a guardian.' ”According to ...

For a marriage to be valid in Islam there are a few things which must be checked first. Can the to be spouses marry each other? Are they blood relatives? Is there any prohibition for this marriage. A Muslim man can further marry a Christian or Jewish or what ever is considered as from the people of the book woman or girl as long as she is chaste, that ...

A Muslim lady in Islam needs a wali to get married based on the view of the majority of scholars, with the exception of imam abu Hanifa who holds the opinion that an experienced woman (who for example was married before based on this hadith) can marry herself, as she knows best what she wants. The order of who can be wali has been discussed in Who can be ...

In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful Briefly speaking, De facto, Othman was not murdered by just an individual, that he/she can be able to be punished by Islamic ruler, but there was a great revolution from Muslims that ultimately was led in murdering of him. As a result, Imam Ali (a.s.) couldn’t punish tens thousands of ...

If none of your family members are muslim, then a muslim Judge(Qazi) may act as your wali, if you can't find one then you may ask any person with the qualification of a judge or witness to act as your wali ... such as an Imam. If the bride has no Muslim guardian and there is no Islamic magistrate to act as one, she may authorize a male Muslim who has ...

Sister, All conditions of the marriage seem to be fulfilled except of your wali (i am not 100% sure about it from your question). but in case as you did not had your wali, any wali could have been appointed from the imam (which i think did not happened) so only in that case marriage was not valid (i would recommend to talk to a scholar, and dont go after ...

what you found recently is about wali, not about wakil. wakil is not always required, only in few cases. wakil represents, wali patronizes. i think probably imam has done according his knowledge or even according to rulings of a mazhab , so probably he does not think himself sinful because they think they should just follow a mazhab. i do not know rulings ...

According to the Shafii, Hanbali, and Maliki madhabs, the wali's permission is necessary. This is not the case in the Hanafi school. According to the Hanafi madhab, once a girl reaches the age of puberty she has the right to get married without obtaining permission from her wali. However, if there is no "match" (الكفاءة) in the marriage, then the wali has ...
