I want to know if a man marry a woman according to islam.
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:
i want to know if a man marry a woman according to islam, can he perform the marriage again with the same woman without getting divorced or is it forbidden to marry the same woman twice in islam.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Nikaah again marry same woman twice
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.
Provided all the obligatory conditions of an Islamic Nikaah were fulfilled the first time, there would obviously be no need for one to perform the same rite of nikaah again to marry the same person! The first nikaah would more than suffice as a lawful marriage in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
Unless and until one has performed the first nikaah in secrecy of ones loved ones or the society one lives in, and intends to perform a second nikaah with the same person only so that their first or secret Nikaah remains a secret in the sight of their loved ones and the society one lives in..
Beloved brother, to perform the second Nikaah for such frivolous reasons would not only be lies and deception, but it would be akin to make a complete mockery of the sacred rite of nikaah in the Sight of Allah Subhanah. The believers who sincerely fear Allah and the Last Day must absolutely abstain from doing anything which would make a mockery of the Laws and Rites of Allah Subhanah.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.
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,
