Receiving a proposal from a boy who does not want the girl to wear hijaab

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I would like to know if a girl that wears hijab gets a proposal from a boy that she likes and he likes her. But the problem is that he doesn’t like her wearing hijab. Should she give him time to like it or should she not marry him. 


A: How can she marry a person who is asking her not to practise her Deen?

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