Help me please and tell me what to tell my parents and can I marry her because of my love for her? I need to know soon please. Jazakallah Khair

Answer

If the girl in reference is already proposed to another person, it will be
prohibited for you to interfere in any way. If she is not, then you should
discuss the matter openly with your parents and express your love for her.

We advise that Istikhaara be also made before deciding further.
