Marriage without the Consent of Parents



I am a 25 year old girl who is living independent both financially and emotionally for the last 3 years with my grandfather and Aunt. I have been proposed for marriage by a pious man 6 months ago and we have been seeking my parents approval for marriage for the past 6 months as a girl cannot marry without the permission of her wali.

They have rejected this proposal on the basis of the boys lack of property and cultural reasoning which Cavour monetary things as compared to the spiritual.

I am very much inclined to marry this man as I have a very good and deep understanding and bond with him and he has the best of characteristics.

Can I preform my Nikkah without my father’s approval as I do not believe I will find a better life partner than him.
