Assalamu Ailekom everybody.
I am a 20 year-old girl and this is my story. About an year ago a man came to my parent’s house and wanted to marry me even if we didn’t know each other. Actually, this wasn’t my problem. He was at least 10 years older than me and had a very strong character. Since our marriage, he wanted me to stop going to school, to see my friends, to go out and other things. He changed my relationship with my parents. He told them that i have donethings i actually never did. So I decided to not marry him but my parents wanted me to do it. And wanted to force me to marriage because it would be a great thing for a girl to be married at 20 years. I said no, but from that moment, my parents didn’t treat me like usually.. My father never talks to me and neither my mother. I became the “bad girl” of the family only because I didn’t want him. Now they don’t talk to me, they always offend and insult me. I cannot live in that house anymore. I am not considered their daughter anymore. I am not part of the family anymore. Life there turned in my worse nightmare and i can’t go on. Since it isn’t halal to force sons to marriage, am I going to lose their rida2 if I run away and go to stay at my friend house? They really don’t act like parents, they completely changed!
Please, answer as soon as possible.
Thanks!
