  14. 14.  Khansa Bint Khidam said “My father married me to his nephew, and I did not like this match, so I complained to the Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace). He said to me “accept what your father has arranged.” I said “I do not wish to accept what my father has arranged.”   He said “then this marriage is invalid, go and marry whomever you wish.”  Abu Hurairah narrates that the Messenger of Allah (May Allah bless him and grant him peace) said “when one with whose religion and character you are satisfied asks your daughter in marriage then accede to his request. If you do not do so then there will be temptation in the earth and extensive corruption”. (Tirmidhi)  A matron should not be given in marriage except after consulting her; and a virgin should not be given in marriage except after her permission." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! How can we know her permission?" He said, "Her silence (indicates her permission)."[Sahih Al-Bukhari 7.67] Nabeel koyal
  15. 15. They are Iibas (cover-up) for you and you are libas for them‘ Al Baqarah 187 "A woman may married for four reasons: for her property, for her rank, for her beauty, and for her religion (and character). So marry the one who is best in the religion and character and prosper". (Bukhari and Muslim) When the husband and wife hold each other’s' hands with love and affection; Allah forgives their sins.' Hadith If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if your fear that you shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then (marry) only one or that which your right hands possess. That will be more suitable to prevent you from doing injustice. Q4:3 Prophet (saws) said: When one of you seeks a woman in marriage let him look at whom he wishes to marry. Related by Abu Dawood Mughirah ibn Shu'bah narrated: I sought a woman in marriage. The Messenger of Allah (saws) asked me :Have you seen her? I said : No. He (saws) then said: Then look at her, because it is more proper that love should be cemented between you. Nabeel koyal
  16. 16.  Early and forced marriages can contribute to girls being placed in a cycle of poverty and powerlessness. Most are likely to experience mistreatment such as violence, abuse and forced sexual relations. This means that women who marry younger in age are more likely to be dominated by their husbands. They also experience poor sexual and reproductive health. Young married girls are more likely to contract HIV and their health could be in jeopardy. Most people who are forced into a marriage lack education and are often illiterate. Young ones tend to drop out of school shortly before they get married Nabeel koyal
  17. 17.  We believe that education is crucial to reducing the incidence of early and forced marriage.  This means improving access to quality education for girls, and also educating the wider community to change the social norms that enable forced marriage to continue.  We work to raise awareness of girls’ rights at community, national and global levels, striving to change both legislation and attitudes.  The issues surrounding forced marriage are complex and can’t be eradicated overnight, but with your support we can work to end the misery of millions of girls across the world.
