Marriage and University

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by CouncilofUlama.co.za

Q: I’m 17 and in Matric. I didn’t want to complete school but was forced to by my parents.They want me to go to university but I refuse. I recently came across a suitable marriage partner. He’s 19. My parents are strict and I’m scared to let him come home to propose. I also wish to do the Aalima course but most Madaaris don’t take married girls. Please advise me; I’m really confused. I don’t want to be in this Haraam relationship. My parents often say I’m “too young” to be married

A: Break off ties with this boy and first consult your parents and follow their advice. By doing this you will have barkah (blessing) in this world and success in the hereafter. However if your parents wants you to go to university and you strongly feel that your deeni principles will be compromised then you should not go. Instead get some local aalim to explain to them to rather allow you to do the aalima cause.
