Q: I have read that many scholars say an infertile husband can marry and has no obligation to inform wife prior marriage as its not a right of the wife that the husband is fertile. What is the hanafi ruling on this? 

I am 24 and really want to marry but I am sub fertile i.e can farther but less chances then other men although i believe it is still upon the command of god. What is your ruling for me should I marry and also do i need to disclose that I am sub fertile before marriage?


A: She has the right to refer to a Jamiat or an ulama body and get the nikaah cancelled.

If you have a need to marry.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
