Wa alaykum salaam

Islam has given full authority to those who want to get married, to choose their spouses themselves.
Although it is better to do this with the advice and permission of the parents.
One of the basic requirement of marriage is acceptance from both parties. That is why nikah cannot be recited without permission from the bride and groom.
