Mid Term Paper2A Case StudyA minor of thirteen years of age, Sister Christiana Akpan, eloped with an eighteen year-old man, Mr. Yinusa Badmus, in order to get married. These two lovers are from Nigeria. Thelady is a Christian, while the boy is a Muslim. The parents of this couple did not consent to thisnew married life. As a Muslim Chaplain, how would you address this scenario?The questions that arise here are:1)Does Islam recognize elopement carried out on the basis of love?2)Can a girl who is still a minor give herself in marriage?3)Does Islam recognize the forced conversion of a minor or an adult into Islam?There are two major sources of Islamic Law, and these are: the holy Qur’an and the Sunna of theholy Prophet Muhammad, SAW. It may also be of interest to note that from the above twosources of Islamic Law, two other laws emerged, and these are: Qiyas i.e. Analogical deductionand Hijma’u i.e. Consensus of opinion. So, Islamic laws are composed of: Qur’an, Hadeeth,Qiyas and Hijma’u.It is stated in the holy Qur’an, chapter 4 verses 3ْمُتْفِخْنِإَف َعاَبُرَو َثَلُثَو ىَنْثَم ءاَسّنلاَنّم مُكَلَباَط اَمْاوُحِكناَفًةَدِحاَوَفْاوُلِدْعَتّلَأ“Marry any woman of your choice, even marry up to two or three or four; but if you fear that youshall not be able to deal justly (with them) then marry only one…”11 Qur’an, chapter 4 verses 3
Mid Term Paper3The holy Prophet Muhammad, SAW, also says !ّضَغَأُهّنِإَف ،ْجّوَزَتَيْلَف َةَءاَبْلاُمُكْنِم َعاَطَتْساِنَمِباَب ّشلاَر َشْعَم اَيُهَلُهّنِإَف ؛ِمْوّصلاِبِهْيَلَعَفْعِطَتْسَيْمَ
