Can a Woman Propose Marriage to a Man?

09 December, 2020
Q It's the norm in most cultures for a man to propose to a woman. But can a woman propose to a man? Does Islam say anything about this?

Answer

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


In this fatwa:

1- It is permissible for a woman to propose marriage to a man but it is not always necessarily advised. Every situation is different.

3- However, in the vast majority of cultures and societies, it is something rare that a woman proposes marriage to a man.
