Wali in nikaah

Q: I just wanted to know if you have no wali can you do nikaah? I have nobody but I want to do nikaah. His parents are not agreeing. Also we are both adults and want to get married can you help please?


A: If you look around you will find a wali. If it is not your parents, then your brothers, uncles, cousins or some senior reliable Muslim elder in your community.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
