Getting married to please one’s uncle

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My husbands uncle asked him to marry his cousin. She lives in Kenya and we live in the US. I am okay with it but my husband is telling me that he feels like he is deceiving her because he doesnt think he can take the responsibility but he doesnt want to get his uncle mad and he regrets accepting it. What I want to know is, is it wrong for me to make dua saying “Allah, if he cant take the responsibility, may Allah not make the marriage happen” because I dont want the girl in sadness because she is my sister? I dont want her to miss the chance of having someone that will love her and not be forced because the father wanted?


A: I suggest that he consult his parents and elders and take a decision after consulting them.

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