Marriage Void or Not

Q:

Assalamu alikum brother,
I had married recently and only after nikah, I came to know that my wife is not interested in marriage. Nikah was done by her brother.
Before nikah her brother didn’t asked her permission to conduct nikah. She said yes for the proposal before engagement. During that time she was having an intention to convince me to back off from nikah but unfortunately it didn’t happen. Now I am trying to convince her don’t know what will happen. But now I doubt whether the nikah is void or not. Please help me through

A:

Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Assalaamu Alaikum,

If the family is aware of her disagreement to this marriage before the Nikah and the Nikah was recited without her permission and if her brother would have asked her before conducting the Nikah she would have refused, in that case the Nikah is void.

May Allah swt help you.

Regards

Sheikh Nadir.
