Islamic rulings regarding consent for marriage for boy and girl


Permission of parents is grandparents is necessary for both Girl and Boy (who are above 22 years of age)?
Kindly explain it with tha help if hadees.


Walikum salam

Thank you for your question.

According to Islamic laws, if a girl is virgin, she has to obtain permission from her father or Paternal Grand father for her marriage(this is obligatory). Otherwise, the marriage (Nikah) is not in order.
And if she is not virgin, she can marry without their consent.

A man doesn’t require permission of his parents for a marriage, but if his parents become unhappy and are saddened by his act, then he should refrain from doing it.
