المفتي قباني يصدر فتوى ضد الزواج المدني: كل مسؤول يوافق عليه هو مرتد و خارج عن الإسلام

Read this story in English W460

اعلن مفتي الجمهورية اللبنانية الشيخ محمد رشيد قباني رفضه للزواج المدني في لبنان، معتبرا كل من يؤيد هذا القانون هو " مرتد خارج عن الإسلام".

نقل الموقع الالكتروني لدار الفتوى عن قباني، قوله اليوم: "افتي مستعينا بالله العظيم: بأن كل من يوافق من المسؤولين المسلمين في السلطة التشريعية والتنفيذية في لبنان، على تشريع وتقنين الزواج المدني، هو مرتد وخارج عن دين الاسلام، ولا يغسل ولا يكفن ولا يصلى عليه، ولا يدفن في مقابر المسلمين".

وعليه، رد الكثير من المغردين على قباني عبر مواقع التواصل الأجتماعي تويتر وفايس بوك.

ورأى خلال اجتماع استثنائي للنقاش في "خطورة اقرار الزواج المدني الاختياري"، انه على جميع العلماء المسلمين "ان يقودوا التصدي لمحاولة تقنين الزواج المدني".

اضاف: "وليكن جميع المتربصين بشرعنا في احوالنا الشخصية اليوم، بمحاولة زرع جرثومة الزواج المدني في لبنان (...) على يقين كامل بان العلماء بالله في لبنان لن يتوانوا عن القيام بواجبهم" في الحؤول دون اقرار القانون.

وكان رئيس الجمهورية ميشال سليمان كتب صباح الاحد على حسابه الرسمي على موقع "تويتر"، "للتجاوب مع التطور ومتطلبات الشعب وايجاد القوانين المناسبة لموضوع الزواج المدني".

واضاف سليمان في تغريدة ثانية "هناك مرجعيات تعارض الزواج المدني ولكن هذا لا يبدل قناعاتي وسعيي لوضع القطار على السكة الصحيحة".

وفي وقت متقدم من ليل الاحد، رد رئيس الحكومة نجيب ميقاتي من خلال الموقع نفسه، على سليمان.

وكتب ميقاتي بالعربية "اولية المرحلة لا تسمح بفتح مواضيع سجالية وخلافية جديدة". اضاف بالانكليزية "اعتقد ان موضوع الزواج المدني لا يمكن ان يتم التعامل معه كمقاربة من اعلى الى اسفل"، واعتبر ان الامر "يعود الى نيل اجماع كل المكونات الوطنية حوله".

ويثير موضوع الزواج المدني جدلا في لبنان في الفترة الاخيرة، وتباينا بين موقف سليمان وميقاتي. وسبق لسليمان ان اعلن تأييده لاقرار القانون، بينما اعتبر ميقاتي ان "لا طائل من مناقشة هذا الموضوع".

ولا يمكن عقد زواج مدني في لبنان، لكن يتم الاعتراف بزواج مدني معقود في الخارج. وتنظم كل طائفة من الطوائف ال18 احوال افرادها الشخصية.

ويطالب المجتمع المدني منذ زمن باقرار قانون الزواج المدني الاختياري ليس لتسهيل الزواج بين اشخاص ينتمون الى اديان مختلفة فحسب، انما ايضا بين اشخاص قد يكونون من دين واحد لكن لا يؤمنون بالارتباط الديني.

لكن الجدل حول الموضوع عاد بعد اعلان نضال درويش وخلود سكرية، وهما مسلمان من مذهبين مختلفين، انهما عقدا زواجا مدنيا في لبنان استنادا الى نص مرسوم من عهد الانتداب الفرنسي ينص على ضمان حقوق الافراد ويشير الى الزواج المدني الفرنسي.

As a "Sunni", I state that Mohammed Rashid Qabbani does not represent me and does not represent Islam and should be impeached. Indeed, he should be put on trial for incitement of hatred and incitement to murder as some of the nutcases claim that death is the punishment for being a murtad or apostate. Indeed he is not only PREDATOR but is threatening the lives of people.

He stated that "Qabbani said offenders would not be eligible to be buried in a Muslim cemetery." RESIGN RESIGN RESIGN. Enough abusing of the Awqaf and refusing to implement a transparent system of governence. RESIGN! RESIGN! RESIGN!

coming from the father of a thief who has been plundering awkaf money....
this is not only the stance of this mufti, it is also the stance of all other men of the cloth. not long ago rahi (before becoming a patriarch, had a similar stance openly against civil marriage.
this affects their income.
but as Lebanese, if we are to get out of the sectarian thinking in this country, civil marriage is surely a step in that direction.

Thumb lebnanfirst 18:44 ,2013 كانون الثاني 29

Yes, @FlameThrower, if the Pope says he is against civil marriage it DOES make him sectarian. The definition of sectarian as an adjective:

sectarian adjective
factional, separatist, partisan, parti pris; doctrinaire, dogmatic, extreme, fanatical, rigid, inflexible, bigoted, hidebound, narrow-minded. ANTONYMS tolerant, liberal.

Can somebody please explain to me why people are in favor of Civil Marriage? I am not trying to be smart, I'm serious when I ask this question. A Muslim gets married and the wedding ceremony is a covenant between man and women, likewise a Christian/Jew/etc. What is accomplished by removing this and being more like "Western Society" and their complete disregard to morals/ethics/charity etc."

Default-user-icon George (ضيف) 13:40 ,2013 كانون الثاني 29

If a Christian man marries a Muslim woman in the Islamic law the kids are Muslim. While typically the children should follow their father. Civil marriage makes sure that Christian/ or Muslim continuation is safe guarded by giving the children the choice. Another example when a Christian woman marries a Muslim she is granted the choice to convert however if she doesn't she can't claim any inheritance and her kids are automatically Muslim in any case does that sound balanced to you ?

@7asrouny
That marriage is a covenant between a man and a women as you said, and is indeed true, why inject religion into it? Can a man and a woman not make a covenant unless through religion? Please...

Also, there are more immoral, unethical and other atrocities committed by "religious" folks than otherwise. How would you classify the attack on the WTC by Bin Laden, or the fighting of Hizbollah partisans in Syria and one can go on and on.

To quote Vladimir Lenin (am not crazy about Bolchevik or communist philosophy but this one rings very true): "Religion is the opiate of the masses". We in Lebanon should stop smoking and clear our heads.

I am Sunni and i believe that Kabbani must resign for his shameful acts, at the same time this doesn't mean because he said he is against civil marriage its OK to approve it. civil marriage is OK for civil countries not for a country were still they mention your religion in the official documents like i5raj qaid. anyways any Muslim knows that civil marriage is against religion, but if any Muslim decide to get married in a civil court, then its between him and God.

Thumb beiruti 18:54 ,2013 كانون الثاني 29

In a confessional system, it is the clergy who are empowered at the expense of the people and their government. At the core of the confessional system is the confessional identity of the individual which is determined at birth and by marriage. If confessional identity becomes irrelevant in marriage, then it becomes irrelevant at the birth of children of that marriage.
Qabbani sees with the civil marriage movement that unwinding of confessionalism in Lebanon and with it, his temporal power as a member of the clergy in Lebanon.
It is the first move toward modernism in Lebanon that the clergy return to matters of God and helping people to do well in the next world, while leaving to the civil leaders matters of state and the well being of the people in this world.

I remember in the mid 90's when the pro-Syrian parliament in Lebanon tried to pass a civil marriage law. Off course, ALL religious leaders were opposed to it and it went nowhere. A poll was taken at the time which showed the majority of Christians supporting civil marriage with Rum Orthodox showing the most support with 61% approval and majority of Muslims opposing civil marriage with Sunnis showing the most disapproval with only 10% support (I have a photographic memory with numbers).

It's not a subtle story, but it is the one that got him exiled from his country and excommunicated from his church..............
