Not having any inclination towards the girl one’s parents have chosen for one

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. My family is originally from Pakistan and very cultural. My parents are currently trying to get me married as well. My mother claims that she performed Istikhara a year ago for a marriage proposal to her sisters daughter and had a dream where she was at their house celebrating. I on the other hand feel very uncomfortable with this relationship and prefer another woman that I have brought to my moms attention as well. On one hand I can go with my choice and disappoint my parents, or I can go with their choice and regret it myself. Do you have any guidance in the issue?


A: We suggest that you explain to your parents that you do not have any inclination towards the girl they want you to get married to.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
