    Default Marriage with the Quran






    Marriage with the Quran

    According to a custom of Sindh province in Pakistan, (in some families) members of the families search the proposals for their daughters, sisters in their own families and in case if they could not find any suitable match then they cover the head of the girl and teach her the Holy Quran in a ceremony. The whole life girl remains with the Quran and its called marriage with Quran. The practice is continue and the purpose is do not give the share to female members of the family.


    Married to the Quran
    Uzma Mazhar 2003


    In a report titled 'Married to the Quran' in the Pakistani weekly newspaper 'The Friday Times' of Pakistan, it said:

    "According to news, a large number of feudals in Sindh had married their daughters to the Quran. The ceremony took place after the girl of the family was asked to take a bath, after which a Quran was put before her as the men folk apologised to her for the ritual which would condemn the girl never to get married but to read the Quran every day. In Sindh, MPA Shabbir Shahs sister, ex-minister Murad Shahs sister and two daughters, three daughters of Mir Awwal Shah of Matiari, daughters and sisters of Sardar Dadan and Nur Khan of the Lund tribe, nieces of Sardar Ghulam of Mahar tribe, and the daughters of the Pir of Bharchundi Sharif, were all married to the Quran to prevent their share of the land going to them and thus avoid redistribution of land."

    This is obviously abusive and unIslamic. This has nothing to do with religion. This is about power, control and greed. Women are not valued enough to consider how their entire lives, and any dreams or hopes they might have had... are ruined by a 'tradition' that is inhumane and beyond any rational explanation. Under the guise of devoting their lives to the Quran, these women's lives are obliterated and wiped out. Trying to legitimize this barbaric behavior they abuse the Quran and Islam. Do they really believe that by giving it a religious twist it becomes an acceptable practice? This is no different than the Jhilyah practices of burying the girl alive, that Islam fought against from day one.

    Obviously this is not a recent practice, but must have been going on for God knows how long. Obviously the men recognize that it is not right as they apologize to the woman before ruining her life. Equally to blame are the mothers and other women of the family who allow this to continue... they are accomplices to this crime as well. To imagine that a father, brother, mother or sister allows this to continue is beyond comprehension. Obviously the society in which this practice continues is silent and are equally to blame.

    Islam does NOT allow or encourage detaching from the world for the sake of religion. When, in Islam, becoming a monk/nun is discouraged, nor is it seen as the height of piety or devotion... how can they claim it as right or permissible? The names listed above are not those of uneducated people, but men who hold high positions of authority... and to trust them to make humane laws for women is ludicrous and terrifying.

    Islam does NOT give men limitless power to abuse women when he is given the status of 'head of the household'. As head of the household it does not allow them to legitimize their abuses. It angers me that men abuse women, and it angers me even more when women buy into such stupidity and allow it to continue. Islam does NOT want sheep for its adherents. As head of the household men are to protect women FROM abuses... not turn around and abuse them.

    i heard about this few years back

    this is done in two ways wen they don't want their daughters to be married with others

    in other case they do this in order to have all the property in their home
    but hopefull it is not practised in other part of paksitan

    only inside the sindh and its very rare

    but at the same time it is bad and shame full
    we should respect the HOLY BOOK
    میں نےجو کیا وہ برا کیا،میں نے خود کو خود ہی تباہ کیا

    جو تجھے پسند ہو میرے رب،مجھے اس ادا کی تلاش ہے

    I've heard about this too, and it shocked me to learn that this practise is still VERY common in the interior areas of Pakistan. Its shocking really. I just wonder as to what these people will reply to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'Ala on the Day of Qayamah.
    May Allah guide us all and keep on the Right Path Ameen.
    JAzakAllah for putting this up.
