Answer:

 

Marriage with intention to divorce


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: Will such marraige be valid in the light of islam? 

The intentions of the hearts are known either to the one who makes them or to The Lord All-Knowing Alone.thus as long as all the obligatory conditions of a nikaah are appropriately and duely honored, regardless of whatever intentions the husband might have in his heart regarding divorce at the time of marriage, the nikaah itself will be considered valid and lawful in the Sight of Shariah Law.

 

If a person marries a woman with the intention of divorcing her the next moment or the next day or even later in life..provided all the obligatory conditions of a nikaah are fulfilled, the marriage itself would be deemed lawful and valid in Shariahbut obviously such an intention on the part of the husband would not constitute piety and righteousness in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.

 

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
