Forcing someone to marry you with ta’weedh

Fatwaa ID: 1780

Assalamu alaikumu ww,
Some one is it jaaiz to make khitba by using a ta’aweedh

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

No. It will not be permissible to use a ta’weedh to force someone to marry you. If she is not interested in you, then respect her decision and continue searching for someone else. Perhaps Allaah Ta’aala has placed khayr elsewhere for you. Sometimes what you may perceive to be good for yourself may not be as such in reality.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
