Answer

(Fatwa: 1320/1074=D/1430)

 

Nikah takes place if performed before two or more valid witnesses, but it is advisable to seek the consent of your parents; since anger of parents may cause you harm and minding their consent is a matter of reward. However, Nikah takes place without their consent as well as we said earlier.

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
