Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalamu alaykum, I am a female that follows the shafee madhab and my husband follows the hanafi school. It has never been an issue and in fact still isn’t. However I recently read in the reliance of the traveller that for shafis a woman has to have a wali for her nikah irrespective if she has been married before and that without a wali such nikah in invalid. I’m a widow that married without a wali even tho’ family members were present(my father and maternal uncle). Is my nikah correct/ valid even tho i entered into it myself.

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
