Marrying Sunni without permission of Parents


My parents are least bothered about me, and the guy i want to marry is of another cast and he is sunni, we bith want to marry, but neither we have parents permission nor witness required for nikkah, just want solution for it


Waalykum salam

Thank you for your Question

So the ruling is that a Shia boy is allowed to marry a sunnI BUT IF there is any fear of his/her beliefs being in danger, then the marriage is not permissible.

It Is a very important decision one must make his/her choices wisely. You may also want to think as to what will happen to your children in the future. What faith will they believe in?

Keeping all this mind, I hope you’re able to make the best decision.
Also, a girl needs her father or paternal grandfathers permission to marry and this permission is compulsory but a man doesn’t. However, I really insist you seek some counseling for yourselves

Good luck
