I am posting in reponse to my previous post ‘Father disaaproves of marriage proposal.’.
In my situation I have described previously, would I be allowed to marry this brother without my fathers consent if my father continues to refuse on the basis of caste/village/out of family, etc? Would my nikah be valid?
Your guidance would be greatly appreciated. May Allah (SWT) shower His endless blessings on you all. Ameen.
wa `alaykum salam,
Mawlana Shaykh Nazim teaches us to seek blessing, not just validity. A Hajj may be valid but not mabrur (blessed) and the Prophet, upon him blessings and peace, said that a person may pray but only half his prayer is accepted or only one fifth or one tenth, although the prayer is valid. It is better to pray for Allah to change your father’s heart and make things easier rather than elope. It is up to you.
