Having the need to get married

Q: A 19 year old girl wants to marry but her parents are refusing and not giving her any chance. They do not have a Shar’ee reason. This is leading to haraam and fitna. Please advice. Can nikaah without their permission be performed?


A: If she is afraid that she will fall prey to haraam then she must make nikaah.

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