Aoa,i have two elder sister one is doing phd in uk and one is doing her own business in Pakistan.both are independent and earning their own. I have my mother at home she is widow my father died in 2011. I am 20 now and i want to marry early because our religion also teach us to marry early to avoid haram my question is this that shariat give me permission to marry before my elder sister’s marriage?
