Father’s permission in temporary marriage
Date 25 September 2022 & Clock 11:33
Is temporary marriage with a girl allowable without permission from the girl’s father? Stipulating that the father’s permission be sought makes such marriage impossible since no father gives such permission to his daughter and this would result in sinning.
Based on obligatory precaution a virgin girl should not get married without her father’s permission. Since such marriage is not suitable for a virgin girl, fathers do not allow it. This per se does not force someone to commit sins. In case one intends to marry a girl, he should propose to her family and provided that her father allows it, conclude a temporary marriage with her. If the father of the girl does not allow it, he should refrain from having unlawful contact with her in order not to fall into sinning.
