Girls father preventing marriage due to boy being from a different caste

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My question is regarding intercaste marriage. Me and the girl I like convinced our parents for intercaste marriage and everything was going well. Everyone agreed but a day before our Nikkah her father refused to do so because of her uncle. They convinced his father that its wrong and put trouble for all of us. Now everyone is willing to do this marriage but her father does not agree. Our Nikkah was not done and we faced challenges. We just want to ask if there is anything that we can do to convince her father to agree to this marriage?


A: If he has any reservations and doubts that are baseless then you rather discuss it with him.

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