To Take a Nadhr to Marry One’s Daughter to a Sayyid Man
Q: I have a daughter who is 24 years old. When she was a child, she fell sick and I took a nadhr that I will marry her to a sayyid if her disease is cured. Praise be to Allah, she restored her health and grew up but I did not tell her about that. Then, she loved a non-sayyid man so much for 8 years and there is a strong relationship between them. What can I do now? Is the said person allowed to marry her?
A: You are not obliged to fulfill your said nadhr. However, if a sayyid man asks for her hand and he is her equivalent, you should accept to marry her to him.
