Boy Not Requiring Consent For Marriage?


Salam Does a boy who is baligh but completely dependent (financially, etc) on his parents need consent for nikkah or can he decide and pronounce his nikkah on his own?

Wa alaykum salaam.

If a boy is baligh and has intellectual maturity, then yes he can decide whether he is dependent or independent.
If he is dependant and his father can stop supporting him if he disobeys him, yes, he requires his father's consent for nikaah.

From ruling 67, MINHAAJ part 3
