Question By : SYED AFSAR

Assalaamualaikum janaab Mufti sahab:
I am syed afsar (28 years old) working in kuwait. I got married to a muslim girl. My in-laws agreed for our marriage, but my parents didn't agree only because it was a love marriage. I got married in my in-laws house where a maulana and some 50 guests came. Maulana completed our marriage ceremony according to shariah in which my parents didn't come, knowingly.
Now, it is almost one year for our marriage. Now my parents have agreed for our marriage, but the main problem is: my parents want to arrage my marriage once again with the same girl (my wife). My parents want to show that i didn't get married one year back and now only i am getting married. None of my relative knows that i got married one year back. My parents also didn't tell any relative about my marriage because of their prestige and now they want to show in front of everyone by re-marriaging me with my wife.
In this situation, if i dont do what my parents want, it may be a matter of shy for them. Now, what should i do according to Islam. Please show me the way. JAZAKALLAH.
NOTE: CAN I GET MARRIED TO MY WIFE ONCE AGAIN (JUST FOR PARENTAL SATISFACTION)? IF DONE SO, WILL IT BE HARMFUL FOR OUR RELATION (HUSBAND AND WIFE) ACCORDING TO ISLAM?

Dear Brother in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

The statement revealed in the above-question shows that the Walee (guardians) of girl were pleased with the Nikah you got, only your parents were unpleasant. Therefore, the Nikah you got in the house of in-laws where required witnesses (two men or one man and two women) were present, is valid, but you have to convince your parents and make them pleased with you, adopting every possible and permissible method, even getting married to your wife once again. The Glorious Qur¡¯an says, ¡°If they try to force you to associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. Live with them honourably in the world, but follow the way of him who turns to Me. Your returning is to Me in the end, when I will tell you what you did.¡± (Suratu Luqman: 31/15)

It doesn¡¯t matter if you remarry your wife. This remarriage won¡¯t cause any kind of harm to your marital life.

And Allah knows the best,
