Marriage Fiqh: Women cannot be forced for Nikah:


Indeed consent of wali is very important for Nikah but on the other hand women cannot be forced for marriage.Whenever a woman is forced for Nikah that Nikah is invalid and a woman can break the ties of Nikah.
The evidence to support this fact is same hadith of sahih Muslim:

“Ibn Abbas (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: A previously married woman (thaib) has more right to her person than her guardian. And a virgin should also be consulted, and her silence implies her consent.”( Sahih Muslim, in Kitab an-Nikah)

This hadith clearly indicates that neither previously married woman nor virgin can be forced by their guardians for Nikah.Similarly when father of Hazrat Khansa binte Hazam radi Allaha anha married her without her will she came to prophet salal laho aliehi wasalam with complaint.Prophet salal laho aliehi wasalam cancelled her Nikah.
It means for an appropriate Nikah there should be consensus between wali and women
