Imam Muslim recored the following hadith(1421):

Khnasa bint Khidam said: “My father married me to his nephew and I did not like this match, so I complained to the Messenger of Allah, SalAllahu Alehi Wasalaam. He said to me: “accept what your father has arranged” I said, ” I do not wish to accept what my father has arranged”.

Then he(SalAllahu Alehi Wasalaam) said, “then this marriage is invalid, go and marry whomever you wish..” I said, “I have accepted what My father has arranged but I wanted women to know that fathers have no right in their daughters affairs.”

[Fath al Bari 9/194, Ibn Majah, Kitabul Nikah]
