Q: I was forced to marry a person whom I did not like. I told my mother many times that I dont want to marry this person but my family was not willing to call off the marriage. One night before the nikah I consumed sleeping pills with intention of commuting suicide (Astagfirulkah). The next day I was under the influence of medicine and I don’t remember anything. During my subconscious state my nikah was done with the boy. I was not in my complete senses. I informed my husband about the suicidal step that I have taken and that I don’t want to live with him. Is this Nikah valid as my consent was not given in complete consciousness.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
