Summarized Fatawaa


Fatwa Number1575

Subject : Son Obeying Mother`s Choice of Wife

Classified : Things that rescue, good relations with relatives

Fatwa Type : Summarized Fatawaa


Question :

Generally speaking, I`m dutiful to my mother and opt for obeying her. However, she chose a certain girl to be my future wife, but I`m not pleased with her choice although that girl comes from a good family and enjoys good character. Should I obey my mother or choose another girl that lives up to my expectations?


The Answer :

Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds.

One must obey their parents in whatever is in compliance with the teachings of Sharia and within one`s capacity. However, you aren`t to blame for not marrying that girl, but it is better that you tell your mother about that and it is preferable that you perform Istikharah prayer. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
