Q: I would like to know if a hanafi girl has found a suitable partner, such a partner that is a Muslim, one who performs his salaah, he is capable of financially providing for her and fulfills all the requirements of nikaah, however her mother refuses for her to make nikaah to such a boy without any solid and valid excuse, will it be allowed for her to make nikaah to him without the happiness of her mother as the mother is not being reasonable?


A: If she does not have a father, then she should speak to a pious senior and understanding person of the family. If they are happy with the boy’s deen and character and they feel that the boy is a suitable match for the girl, they may get her married to him.

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