Praise be to Allaah.
note – may Allaah bless you – that our great religion has issued stern
warnings against forming relationships between the sexes outside the
framework of marriage. It firmly closes the door to the friendship programs
that have become widespread in newspapers and magazines and over the
internet; this is in order to prevent fitnah and to prevent love
relationships that usually lead people to immoral actions and transgression
of the scared limits of Allaah, Allaah forbid, or leads them to marriage
which is likely to fail because it is based on suspicion and mistrust.
You made a
mistake when you formed a friendship with a young man who is not related to
As for your
saying “I give my soul to you…” this is also wrong. Firstly, because it is
not permissible for a man to marry a woman without the permission of her
wali (guardian), whether she is a virgin or has been previously married.
This is the view of the majority of scholars, including al-Shaafa’i, Maalik
and Ahmad, because of the words of the Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him): “There is no marriage without a wali”. Narrated by
al-Tirmidhi (1101), Abu Dawood (2085) and Ibn Maajah (1881); classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi (1/318). And it was
narrated that ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) said: The Messenger
of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Any woman
who gets married without the permission of her wali, her marriage is
invalid, her marriage is invalid, her marriage is invalid.” Narrated by
al-Tirmidhi (1102), Abu Dawood (2083) and Ibn Maajah (1879); classed as
saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel (1840).
is not permissible for a woman to give herself to a man, and she does not
become permissible to him thereby. This is something that applied only to
the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), and no one
among his ummah has the right to do that. Allaah says (interpretation of the
believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet, and the Prophet wishes
to marry her
a privilege for you only, not for the (rest of) the believers”
As for his
saying that this is “what one's right hand possesses” this is also wrong,
because a free Muslim woman cannot become a slave, rather the slave woman is
a woman from a kaafir nation that is at war with the Muslims, if the Muslims
al-Shanqeeti (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: The reason why a person
may be owned as a slave is kufr and waging war against Allaah and His
Messenger. If Allaah enables the Muslims who are fighting in jihad so that
the word of Allaah will be supreme to prevail over the kuffaar, then that
makes them their slaves.
from Adwa’ al-Bayaan,
would like to say that marriage which is based on anything other than a
sound shar’i foundation is bound to fail and will lead to regret. The young
man who forms such a long-term relationship with a non-mahram girl via chat
rooms and phones is in fact a young man who is lacking in religious
awareness, modesty and proper etiquette, and he is not to be trusted with
the honour of the Muslims. We advise you to repent to Allaah and turn back
to Him, and keep away from this young man. That will be safer for you,
before you regret it at a time when regret will be to no avail. You have a
lesson in the many stories which started with talking over the telephone and
ended in misery and regret.
