  A question posted on behalf of a brother.

As salaamu alaikum warahmatullaah

I have been in the process of looking for a sister to marry and recently I have met a sister who's deen is well gaurded and has been on salafiyya for some years now, mashaAllah. Before approaching her and her family, i had the approval of my parents. However, now that i have decided to go ahead with marrying her, they have expressed objections, solely on the grounds that she is not within our family. They have not met or spoken to her or her family. I have tried to reconcile the situation but to no avail.

In such a situation, is it permissible for me to go ahead with my decision even if there is a good chance that my parents and my wider family will not attend my wedding and will most probably not speak to me after this. Consequently, there is the possiblity the ties of kinship will be broken?

Also, bearing in mind that there is no salafi sister in my family whom i am able to marry. Also if i was to marry ANY salafi sister their excuse will be the same, i.e. she is not within the family.

Please advise me as soon as possible so that I can reply to the sisters family as they are considering looking else where?

JazakAllahu khairan

  If it is a fatwaa you seek then itis not the answer of the talabatul Ilm you need! rather these matters are to be taken to ahlul Ilm as i am sure has been stated by Admin ثبتهم الله على الحق many times. Taking the Huqooq(rights) from a wali is a serious matter and I am sure that the talabatul Ilm will never haste to give such a ruling!
