Family members not permitting the girl to remarry

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have been married twice before and have three children. I am living back with my parents (mom and brother) since earlier this year, but work and see to the kids for everything excluding rent to stay. I am having a hard time coping financially. I would like to remarry but my brother (my father has passed on some years ago) thinks it is too soon and will not meet the man that has put the proposal forward. My question is do I need consent from my brother and or mother?


A: If there is a need then you should marry. It is wrong for them to discourage you.

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