Islam allows women to propose to ‘good’ men, says Al Azhar cleric

A high-ranking cleric and member of the Fatwa committee of the Sunni world’s main Islamic institution Al Azhar Ahmed Refa’at said that women are allowed to ask a man for marriage who she considers to be ‘good’, media reports say.

He added in a statement to private TV channel of Al-Nahar that the Islamic sharia law allows a father of a girl to choose a good man for his daughter and ask him to marry her.

He further explained that Islam allows women to ask good men for marriage, saying that this took place during the era of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) while adding that there are conditions coming with the practice.

“A woman can do this only, if the man is good, not handsome or rich, and should be done within the framework of Islamic law,” he stressed.
