Fatawaa


Subject :

Fatwa Number : 1491

Classified : Forbidden marriages

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa


Question :

Is it permissible for the woman who is observing Iddah* after her husband`s death to sit with her daughter`s suitor, although their marriage contract hasn`t been concluded yet?



The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of The Worlds. May His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.

A suitor who hasn`t concluded the marriage contract isn`t a Mahram*, so he must be treated as such. And Allah the Almighty knows best.

* The period a woman must observe after the death of her husband or after a divorce, during which she may not marry another man.

* In Islam, a mahram is a member of one's family with whom marriage would be considered haram, concealment purdah, or concealment of the body with hijab, is not obligatory; and with whom, if he is an adult male, she may be escorted during a journey, although an escort may not be obligatory.
