What is the ruling regarding daughters who publicize themselves in the newspapers and magazines with a description of their characteristics for the one who desires to propose and marry them?


A woman publicizing herself in the magazines and newspapers out of a desire for marriage, whilst making a mention of her characteristics is (something) in opposition to shyness, modesty and protection (of a woman from strange men and harm). This is not from the normal habits of the Muslims and it is obligatory to abandon it.

This (action) is in violation of the guardianship of her guardian over her, due to the (fact) that a proposal made to her for marriage has (to be done) through him and (with) his agreement. Allah says:   


{فَانكِحُوهُنَّ بِإِذْنِ أَهْلِهِنَّ}.

Which means: {So marry them with the permission of their people} (Qur'an 4:25).

 ما حكم إعلان البنات عن أنفسهن في الجرائد والمجلات مع مواصفاتهن لمن يرغب خطبتهن والزواج منهن‏؟‏


إعلان المرأة في الجرائد والمجلات عن رغبتها في الزواج وذكر مواصفاتها- يتنافى مع الحياء والحشمة والستر، ولم يكن من عادة المسلمين، فالواجب تركه‏.‏ وأيضا هذا العمل يتنافى مع قوامة وليها عليها، وكون خطبتها عن طريقه وموافقته‏.‏ وبالله التوفيق، وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم‏.‏
