Who will be the Guardian for the Marriage of the Orphan Girl?
Question:

To His Eminence, the Shaikh : Who will take charge of contracting the marriage of a girl whose father has died, in order of preference? may Allaah reward you.
Answer:

If she has no guardian, then her grandfather - her father's father - if he is alive. If she has no grandfather, then her full brothers - the sons of her father and mother, then her brother from her father's side, then her full brother's son, then the son of her brother from her father's side, then the full paternal uncle, then the paternal uncle from the father's side and so on. However if her father is present, he has preference.
