Impotent inform bride before marriage
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.
Your Question: Now you please guide me whether it is permissible in Islam to marry in this position and whether it is necesaary to inform the girl and his parents about my situation before i marry that girl.
Respected brother, firstly a marriage in Islam is not obligatory, but rather voluntary and an extremely preferred Sunnahthus if one marries, fears Allah, and fulfills ones obligations in the marriage, one would receive a huge reward for their piety from their Lord; and if for any reason one chooses not to marry, there is no sin upon them.
Secondly, there is absolutely no such requirement or obligation in Shariah that every believer has to undergo a medical check-up and get certified that they will be able to bear children!
But if one has prior knowledge and knows for sure that one has a physical or medical disability like impotency or one is sterile, whereby one would not be able to fulfill the conjugal rights on ones wife in their marriage.then indeed it would be ones moral obligation, and akin to piety and righteousness in the Sight of their Lord, that one clearly makes it known to the guardians of the bride regarding their medical condition before their marriage. If the bride, for any reason thereafter, chooses to agree to marry that person, there is absolutely no harm or restriction in Shariah in marrying that woman.
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,
