Parents preventing me marrying pious believer



I am a practising Muslimah but my parents are traditional. They want me to marry men who do not pray and will not allow me to choose my own spouse. They say I either get married to someone they choose or never get married. What do I do




This is a challenging situation. May Allah open doors of happiness and contentment in obedience to Him and His Messenger saws!

You are only obligated to obey according the the Shari’ah of Muhammad and cannot be forced into an unwanted marriage.  Be patient until a halal way of consent and piety opens.  Allah is the changer of hearts.

Wa Allahu Alam,

Kamau Ayyubi
