Marriage (8)

On the question of marriage, a Muslim man may marry any other Muslim woman or a woman from the Ahl-ul-Kitab (Jews or Christians) but he may not marry a Kaffir woman. When a man and a woman want to marry, the restriction is that they must both agree to the marriage. If one of them does not agree to the marriage, then their marriage is void. In the case of marriage with a virgin girl, the permission of the father or the grandfather of the girl is also required as well as her agreement to the marriage. In your case, if you want to marry someone but your family does not wish you to, try to obtain your parents agreement for the marriage. You need their blessings for your marriage, and also in the long term, you need their support and you want to establish a good relationship between you and them as well as your in-laws. So it is in your best interest to obtain your parents agreement but at the end of the day the decision is yours and yours only.

Just to clarify the previous answer. If she is willing to marry him temporarily, (Muta) she does not need her fathers permission. If she wants to marry him permanently however, some scholars say she needs her fathers permission, and some say she doesn’t need it. And Ayatollah Shirazi says she does not need her fathers permission.

That is not permissible. Since practicing Islam without full submission to Islam is useless and not accepted in the first place because Allah states in the Holy Quran: The religion Allah accepts alone is Islam.

Not permanent marriage. But with the intention of temporary marriage (Mut’ah), that is permissible. However, both the man and woman should know it is temporary. It is not allowed that only the man intends a temporary marriage and the wife believes it is a permanent one. The type of contact (Mut’ah / Munqati’ and or Da’im / permanent) needs to be clarified.
