The purpose of this study is to present contextual ijtihad to realize gender justice. This research is library research with a philosophical-contextual approach. No one can oppose or have authority more than a person itself, provided two conditions; first, its equivalent (sekufu’), second, the dowry not less than dowry mitsil. If the choice is not equal, the guardian or the parent has may oppose the marriage and submit to the Qadhi (judge) to annul the marriage. Likewise, if the man of her choice does not give the mitsil dowry, the parent also has a right to void a marriage.
