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.
Question: .now he would like to marry her again without taking his wife`s and
parents permission can he remarry the same girl since the first marriage was
invalid as per Islam, Shariah,)
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5 (part):
(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.
There are four obligatory conditions for a marriage or nikaah to be lawful in Shariah:
- Proposal by one party and acceptance by the other.
- The determination of mehr.
- The presence of (at least) two witnesses to the marriage contract.
- The consent of the parents/guardians of the bride.
The obtaining of the permission or consent of ones first wife or the grooms parents are not amongst the obligatory conditions of a marriage in Islam; thus if the woman the man intends to marry is eligible (single believing, Christian, or a Jewish woman), and provided the above four listed obligatory conditions are honored.the marriage between the couple will be considered legal and lawful in the Sight of Shariah.
Even if the first marriage between the two was declared null and void because the woman had not fulfilled her waiting period of iddah, or even if they were divorced earlier (provided it was not an irrevocable third divorce).the couple are well within their rights to seek to marry each other, if indeed they wish to do so.
Your Statements: ..this guy is not at all worrying about his parents and brother nor even carrying about his wife and kids, he is ready to brake his relation with his parents and brother, because they all are against the marriage the women is characterless, but the guy is very desperate about marry her,
As much as the acts of the person in hurting his parents and family, or breaking relations with them, may not befit the character of a pious and righteous believer.the fact remains that if the person fulfills all the obligatory conditions of the nikaah contract, the marriage itself will be considered lawful and valid in the Sight of Shariah Law.
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,
