If a girl wishes to get married and she has reached the age of legal responsibility (bulūgh) and is mature (rashīdah) – meaning that she is able to determine what is in her interest – and she is a virgin, and she is not in charge of her life’s affairs, then such a girl must obtain the consent of her father or grandfather. In fact, based on obligatory precaution, even if she is in charge of her life’s affairs, she must still obtain their consent. The consent of her mother or brother is not necessary.
