  • Difficulty In Marriage For Someone Who Follows Ghamidi Sahab's Epistemology

    Posted by Mohammed Zubair Alam on June 1, 2022 at 10:38 am

    I was watching videos of Ghamidi sahab on inter-sect marriages and suddenly one question came to my mind. As Ghamidi sahab said, there is no restriction on marrying a muslim according to Sharia. However, differences of opinion can create problems. The main problem which Ghamidi sahab particularly pointed out is the bringing up of a child in differences.

    My question is, It’s easy for a Shia to find a Shia, a Sunni can easily marry anyone from the four school of thoughts(As there is not much differences ), but it will be a hardship for a person who follows Ghamidi sahab’s opinion to find someone from the same school of thought. This is because at present there are very less followers of Ghamidi sahab.

    So..What should a person do in such a case?

    Ghamidi sahab has not created a sect. it is a scholarly way to approaching Quran and there are a few difference of opinions on scholarly matters and he does not insist others to adopt it. His school of thought has no traces of sect. So a follower of him can marry a person of his or her choice. His opinions do not create the difference of kufr and iman, except in the matters of wahdatul wajood (Unity of existence.) as it is shirk, but this too is in principle and we do not make a ruling for a particular person to be Mushrik.

      In this video, the problem that Ghamidi sahab actually pointed out is raising a child.

      A couple can mutually live with having differences but when it comes to raising a child, there will be issues but this issue can easily be solved by letting the child to decide but Ghamidi sahab dissapproved this approach too.

      So Can’t a couple teach their child from both the sides and then let the child to decide at his/her age of conciousness?.

    Yes they can do that. This is not matter of lawful and unlawful but a matter of advice. Less differences and more compatibility is better for marriage life
