My dad wants me to marry a girl who is 13/14 years old

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

I am 28 years old and my father wants me to get marry this year.

We belong to Mehdavi community and we have very lesser option to choose girls as my dad strictly want me to marry in same community. I respect his words and will do as his wish.

My father has proposal for me from girls but the girl is only 13-14 year old, after all my tries he wants me to marry this girl as she is very good in character and all….

The problem is I am in KSA and the girl is in India and I don’t think we can make marriage certificate as in India age limit is 18 years for girls we would need marriage certificate as I would call her Saudi Arabia after marriage.
