Marry with the Quran
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Bahi Jan , God bless you due to your wonderful effort done for the Muslims like
me who don`t get much chance or oppurtunity to learn the religion....I am from
Burhan Bahi !! i want to ask a very important question from you.
In many places people do such a thing that they marry their daughters with Quran . i mean they do their daughter`s Nikah with the Quran & from onwards she can`t marry any other man. Sir this seems really cruel action for the females & seems really illiterate & narrow approach. Sir Does Islam allow such a thing .. Through authentic Hadiths & Ayyas from Quran please tell me whether allows this action & on which basis & conditions does Islam favours this marriage.. i need this answer as early as possible becuase there are some people around me who are going to do such a marriage

Marry with the Quran
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 no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5:
5 This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them. (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers but chaste women among the People of the Book revealed before your time, when ye give them their due dowers and desire chastity not lewdness nor secret intrigues. If anyone rejects faith fruitless is his work and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).
Dear and Beloved Brother, Allah Subhanah has permitted the believers to marry non-mehram from amongst the chaste believing women and chaste women from amongst the Jews or the Christians.
There is not an iota of evidence in the Glorious Quran or in the teachings of the Prophet (saws) whereby Islam permits, encourages, or allows a believing woman to marry anyone other than a believer!
Allah is our witness, it is absolutely against the teachings of Islam and an abject injustice for one to marry a human being to an object; regardless of whether that object is a Book or any other object in creation! And if the ones who promotes this kind of ‘marriage’ of a woman to the Glorious Quran dare to even claim that this ‘marriage’ is legal or allowed or condoned in the deen of Islam, Allah is our witness, they are absolute and total liars who have invented a blasphemy against Allah Subhanah, the Lord of the Worlds.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anam verse 21:
21 Who does more wrong than he who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His Signs? But verily the wrong-doers never shall prosper.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 7 Surah Aaraaf verse 37:
37 Who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His signs?
This ritual of marrying a girl to an object is an unjust practice of the pagans and mushriks who used to marry their girls to their idols and their self-invented and imaginary gods. Islam absolutely, totally, and utterly prohibits and outlaws any and all such rituals of the mushriks and the pagans! The people or guardians who practice this evil and unjust and inhumane ritual of marrying their daughters to a book will be brought forth as criminals in the Majestic Court of the All-Mighty Lord to answer for the utter and absolute blasphemy.

Sahih Muslim HadithHadith 79 Narrated byAbuSa'id al-Khudri
I heard the Messenger of Allah (saws) as saying: ‘He who amongst you sees something abominable should modify it with the help of his hands; and if he has not strength enough to do it, then he should do it with his tongue; and if he has not strength enough to do even that then he should (at least abhor it) from his heart, and that is the least of faith.’
Dear and beloved brother, if you have the strength or ability to stop this abomination of a believing woman being married to the Quran, then try your best to stop this abomination for the sake of Allah Subhanah. If you do not posses the strength or power to stop this abomination yourself, please take the help of the authorities like some good muslim scholars or even the police in the area and get them to stop this abomination. Allah is our witness, this striving of yours will be recorded as a great deed in your book of records and you will have your due reward from Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s 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,
