‘Ataa’ ibn Rabaah (a scholar) narrated that when ‘Ali proposed to Faatimah, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, came to her and said: “’Ali has mentioned you.” She stayed silent, so the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, married her to ‘Ali

This was because the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, considered her silence as a form of acceptance of the husband, for the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said:

“The virgin girl should not be married off until she gives her permission.” They asked him, “How can she give permission?” He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, replied: “For her to stay silent.”

Thus, the daughter is a trust in her father’s house, and it is not permissible for her father to marry her to a man against her wishes.
