Can A Father Force His Daughter To Marry?
Shaykh Muhammad bin Ibraaheem Aal us-Shaykh [1389H]

Question:

What is the ruling concerning a father marrying his daughter without her permission and pleasure. She is not a virgin and has previously been married.

Answer:

If the affair is as you have mentioned, then this last marriage of hers is not valid. That is because from the conditions of marriage is that both parties are pleased with the marriage. The non-virgin cannot be forced by her father (to marry) if she is over nine years old without (there being) any difference (on this issue among the scholars).
