Answer ( 1 )

  1. Marriage is one of the most important institutions in human society. Marriage is not just about getting married; it is also about living together, raising children, creating families, and building communities. In fact, marriage is the foundation of every family.

    Islam recognizes marriage as a sacred institution which Allah created for mankind. Muslims believe that marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman. A Muslim should never enter into a contract without being certain of his/her intention to live according to Islamic teachings.

    There are several conditions under which a Muslim may not enter into a valid marriage. These include:

    1) When the parties involved are both underage.

    2) When the parties involved have already entered into a binding relationship such as engagement or prenuptial agreement.

    3) When one of the parties involved is mentally ill.

    4) When one of the partners is divorced or widowed.

    5) When one of the spouses is a polytheist.

    6) When one of the participants is a slave.

    7) When one of the couple is a eunuch.

    8) When one of the couples is a homosexual.

    Is it permissible to marry someone who doesn’t believe in Allah?

    This question is often asked by non-Muslims. The answer is no. Muslims cannot marry anyone who does not believe in Allah (God). This includes atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Christians, and others.

    Islam forbids marriage between two unbelievers because this would be akin to marrying Satan himself.

    However, there is nothing wrong with having friends who do not share our beliefs. We should respect each other’s right to practice whatever religion they wish.

    If we were to find out that our friend was secretly practicing another faith, we must still treat them kindly and respectfully. But we should never force them to convert to Islam.

    We should only ask them to accept Islam when they freely decide to become Muslim.

    Can I marry my cousin?

    Yes, you may marry your cousin. However, there are some conditions that must be met.

    First, you cannot marry anyone who is not Muslim. Second, you cannot marry anyone younger than yourself. Third, you cannot marry anyone older than yourself. Fourth, you cannot marry anyone whose religion differs from yours. Fifth, you cannot marry anyone whom you already have children with. Sixth, you cannot marry anyone unless he/she agrees to convert to Islam.

    If you meet these requirements, then you’re free to marry your cousin.

    Are we allowed to marry our aunt/uncle?

    Islam forbids marriage between close relatives (elderly parents, siblings, children). This includes cousins, nieces, nephews, grandparents, grandchildren, great-grandparents, etc.

    However, there are exceptions to this rule. First, if the couple is not married yet, then they may be able to get away with marrying each other. Second, if the couple is already married, then they’re free to divorce and remarry. Third, if the couple is divorced, then they can marry again. Fourth, if the couple is widowed, then they can remarry. Fifth, if the couple is separated, then they can rejoin together after a period of separation. Sixth, if the couple is engaged, then they can marry once the engagement ends. Seventh, if the couple is unmarried and living together, then they can marry. Eighth, if the couple is married and living apart, then they can marry if they agree to live together. Ninth, if the couple is legally separated, then they can marry when they become legally separated. Tenth, if the couple is single and never been married, then they can marry at any time.
