Deserting his family for refusing his marriage

Q: I am a twenty-three year old unmarried man. I belong to a big tribe; my people have no one for me to marry. Others make fun of me, whenever I propose to one of their daughters although I have not neglected any of their rights. I perform the five pillars of Islam and I avoid sins such as drinking alcohol etc., and I have never been involved in any immoral acts. Is it permissible for me to abandon this tribe and marry someone from any other tribe?

A: It is not permissible for you to abandon them because they do not want you to marry one of their daughters. It is permissible for you to marry any woman from any other tribe. The most important thing is to marry a chaste Muslim woman. (Part No. 18; Page No. 11) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
