On the Waliy (a legally accountable

Q 7: What is the ruling on giving a daughter in marriage to a person who is ignorant of the pillars of Islam?

A: A woman's Waliy (a legally accountable person acting for a woman regarding marriage) should choose for the woman under his guardianship the most suitable person regarding religion and honesty. This is supported by many Shar`y (Islamic legal) evidence. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
