I’ve received a proposal from a syed through his sister but my dad is rejecting it after having asked someone to do background check-according to it they are not good people and the area they are living is also has a bad reputation and that they are Shia etc..I know his sister since 4/5 years and I know for a fact that they are Sunni and from what I’ve seen over the years they are good/religious people..main reason why I’m interested in this proposal is the fact that he is syed..but dad is not accepting..so what should I do, accept dads wishes or go ahead without his permission? JazakAllahu Khairan
Accept your father’s wishes but ask him respectfully to look into the matter again. You had 5 years so give him a little more time. Let them make a formal proposal and break the ice.
Keep all your duties and obligations faithfully and recite daily ya Karim ya Nur ya Rabb ya Allah. Accept what Allah tells you at their hand as all good things come to those who are patient.
