Q: My friend and I like each other and we want to make nikaah so that we can have a halaal relationship and not be boy friend and girlfriend. His parents said that they want to come home to speak to my parents about us making nikaah. My parents don’t want us to make nikaah and they threaten me to stop wanting to marry him or else they will force me to marry some one else or they will hit him. I really want my relationship to be halaal and I wanat to make nikaah. What should I do? Will it be wrong if I make nikaah without my parents consent?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
