    I’m thameem ansari. I would like to wish Dr.Zakir Naik for being a great dhaiee in this modern world.

    My question is, what is your opinion or an idea about the LACK OF UNITY or SEPARATATION in between our Muslim people(jamath).Eg sunnath,tawheed,thableeg jamath etc. Is this due to ego or any verses indicating about the separation of jamath in the holy Qur’an. We barewitness that there is no god except Allah and the last messenger is prophet Muhammad saw(peace be upon him).and we all have the same 5pillars.all are same.but why we are fighting each other.

    Is this separation takes place in india or throughout the world

  20. Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh.

    I am a 24 year old female student from Bangladesh. I am in love with a man who is of the same age like me. I have known him and his family for more than an year. I know them closely and I know that they are a good religious family. We both love each other and we both are compatible in terms of religious commitment and good character.
    So we both decided to tell our parents about what we felt for each other and that we wanted to get married. Alhamdulillah his parents liked me and agreed for the marriage. However, my parents did not agree because they got to know that his family belongs from a division (Barishal) my parents don’t like at all and they refused him and his family without even trying to get to know them or even meeting them. I tried to make my parents understand that no one should judge a person or family without knowing them and that my parents should not judge his family and tell that they are bad just because they belong from a division my parents don’t like, and they also said that they don’t like the man I choose but when I ask them why then my parents can’t give me any valid reason about why they don’t like him and why they are rejecting him. I tried to make them understand a lot of times but I failed. I went in great shock as I know how good everyone’s character is from his family and that I loved him truly with pure intentions and so does he. The marriage would be invalid without my father’s permission and that it will be invalid and haram so he and his family refused for the marriage later on.

    Later on I searched through the internet and read that: ‘Any woman who gets married without the permission of her guardian, her marriage is invalid. But if the wali repeatedly refuses the proposal of a compatible suitor without any valid reason, he is to be regarded as preventing the marriage of the female relative under his care, and his guardianship is thus rendered null and void, and that right is transferred to the next closest relative on the father’s side. Narrated by Ahmad (24417), Abu Dawood (2083) and al-Tirmidhi (1102); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’ no. 2709.’
    And I also read that: ‘The general principle is that, according to the relied upon position in the Hanafi School, the marriage of a free sane and adult woman without the approval of her guardian (wali) is valid if the person she is marrying is a legal and suitable match (kuf’) to her. However, if the person she is marrying is not her legal match, then her marriage would be considered invalid. The other three Sunni Schools consider a marriage without the guardian’s approval to be invalid regardless of whether the person she is marrying is a legal match to her or otherwise.’

    It is written that the marriage of a free sane and adult woman without the approval of her guardian (wali) is valid if the person she is marrying is a legal and suitable match (kuf’) to her. As I am sane and adult, my question to you is that is this statement true? Can I marry him without my wali’s approval and will the marriage be valid? And that what are the ways through which I can get to know who is a legal and suitable match and who is not?

    And I want you to tell and suggest me what I should do as I am in a dilemma and hurt about everything.
    Hope to get the response soon.

    Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh.
