Racism and Forced Marriage in the Light of Islam: by Abu Khadeejah

Abu Khadeejah hafidhahullaah addresses this sickness that has plagued the Muslim nation, citing many proofs and evidences from the Qur’aan & Sunnah, along with the statements of the Scholars. This lecture is aimed at everyone, even though the title may indicate that it is related to marriage.

Issues discussed within this beneficial lecture:

The forbiddance of forced marriage within Islaam.

Racism, tribalism, nationalism.

Abu Khadeejah mentions the speech of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih al Uthaymeen Rahimahullah regarding a father forcing his daughter to marry one she does not wish to marry. Stating therein, the marriage contract of one in a forced marriage is a contract that is false and erroneous.

Many of these forced marriages do not hold, with many ending in divorce. Because the basis wasn’t al-Islaam, rather, the basis was tribalism, racism etc…

Racism opposes Islaam, Allaah does not look at your forms (colours etc) rather Allaah looks towards your hearts, actions, deeds.

{Indeed the believers are brothers} [Hujuraat:10]
