I would like to tell you about my secret marriage and I want to know what I have to do now?


On 18th June 2001, I married my paternal sister secretly (In front of my two friends and they were witnessed my marriage), for your information their was no document signed by us. Just we accepted ourselves with our tongue and heart. My friend told the Qudbah and did dua for us.


We involved in sex. She was pregnant. As nobody knews about my our marriage, we decided to abort the child and we did this major sin.


In 2004 I came to Saudi Arabia to earn money. In 2006 my parents did the engagement with the same girl. But in this time I talk to her very often (Very rare).


Remember that still nobody knews about our marraige. Just they know about our love affair and they did engagement and now waiting for my visit to do marriage.


I have some legal problems in my Iqama (transfer of sponsorship problem). Its taking time to solve this problem. It is too much delayed. I am expecting it will be done very soon Inshallah but do not know the exact time.


They are waiting in India for marriage and I struck here due to My Iqama problem.


Please let me know according to Islam, is it OK what I have done ??? and is it OK what I am doing now????


Waiting for your earliest response,


Please let this know to all people....


Jazakumullahukhaira !!!!

Answer:

 

Secret marriage zina abortion

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Your Question: .On 18th June 2001, I married my paternal sister secretly (In front of my two friends and they were witnessed my marriage), for your information their was no document signed by us. Just we accepted ourselves with our tongue and heart. My friend told the Qudbah and did dua for us.

In light of the teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah, the following acts are considered absolutely obligatory conditions of a marriage or nikaah contract:

  1. The proposal by the groom and the acceptance by the bride
  2. The determination of the mehr gift for the bride
  3. The presence of (at least) two witnesses to the nikaah contract
  4. The presence and consent of the guardian or wali of the bride.

 

Any marriage which does not satisfy even one of the above obligatory conditions of Islamic marriage will be deemed null and void in the Sight of Allah Subhanah and Shariah.

 

If the boy and the girl have between themselves simply and merely accepted each other in front of a couple of witnesses, but without the determination of the obligatory mehr and the consent of the brides guardians.such a marriage ceremony would hold absolutely no legal status in Islam, and it would be deemed absolutely illegal, null and void in the Sight of Allah Subhanah and Shariah Law.

 

The boy, the girl, and the witnesses who conspired this supposed ceremony in their ignorance have made a complete mockery of the sacred institution of Nikaah in Islam..and it would only be prudent and wise that they seek sincere forgiveness for their actions from their Lord Most Gracious.

 

Your Statement: ..We involved in sex

For a couple to engage in sexual intercourse after the above farce of a marriage ceremony would constitute a clear case and manifestation of the heinous and abomination crime of zina or unlawful sexual intercourse in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

 

Your Statement: .She was pregnant. As nobody knews about my our marriage, we decided to abort the child and we did this major sin.

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 140:

Most surely they became losers, who, in their folly and ignorance killed their own children; and made unlawful what Allah had provided them as sustenance, falsely ascribing prohibitions to Allah. Surely, they went astray and were not at all rightly guided.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Israa verse 31:

Do not kill your children for fear of want; for it is We Who provide for them, and for you as well. Indeed, their killing is a heinous crime!

 

Islam categorically prohibits abortion or the intentional murder of an innocent soul.

 

Your Question: ..Please let me know according to Islam, is it OK what I have done ??? and is it OK what I am doing now????

 

  1. To develop and maintain a relationship with a non-mehram woman is a gross violation of the Laws and Boundaries of Allah Subhanah!
  2. To conspire and arrange to make a complete mockery of the sacred institution of nikaah in Islam is without an iota of a doubt a grave sin in the Sight of the Lord!
  3. To indulge in the act of sexual intercourse with the woman out of marriage would constitute the evil abomination and crime of zina in the Sight of the Lord!
  4. To abort or intentionally kill an innocent soul would be tantamount to the act of murder in the Sight of the Lord Most High!

 

Not only are the acts committed absolutely and categorically not-OK in the Sight of the Lord Most Majestic Most Supreme Who Created..every one of the above listed acts are a gross violation of the prescribed Boundaries of the Lord, and abominations in the Sight of the Allah Subhanah!

 

If the people who committed the above acts, or the people who conspired or helped others commit the above acts do not turn back to their Lord and seek absolutely sincere forgiveness for their crimes..they should prepare for an extremely severe accounting in the Presence of their Majestic and Supreme Lord on that Inevitable and Tumultuous Day of Judgment!

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
