Parental Permission For Marriage

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Assalam Allikum !! 


In accordance, to the matter of compulsory precaution for a girl to seek her father's permission for marriage. 

If a girl was grown up by her guardians, and her father was not involved in her matters,caring and parental responsibilities. 

Who has she to seek for permission of her marriage? Does she need to ask her Real father's permission for marriage? 

But if with the permission of her guardian parents she has married, is it permissible? 

Please assist in consideration of Islamic regulations. ([Edited Out]e)


Best Regards.

salamun alaykum


according to fatwas she should get their permission but there are some exceptions in which it will not be necessary for a woman to seek the permission of her father or paternal grandfather, before getting married:

(i) If she is not a virgin.

(ii) If she is a virgin, but her father or paternal grandfather refuse to grant permission to her for marrying a man who is compatible to her in the eyes of Shariah, as well as custom (and she thinks if she refuses the marriage she won’t be able to get a compatible husband).

(iii) If they are not in a capacity to give their consent, like in the case of mental illness etc.

(iv) If it is not possible to obtain their permission because of their absence, or such other reasons, and the woman is eager to get married urgently.


So otherwise their permission is necessary.


If she’s got married without their permission, she should gain their permission and satisfy them to have a valid marriage.

According to Ayt. Sistani she should seek her natural father's permission if possible. If neither her natural father nor paternal grandfather are available she doesn't need anyone's permission.

Of course, keeping peace in the family is important. Whether required or not, it's probably a good idea to seek the blessing of her guardian.

And as always, if the natural father denies permission without valid reason, his permission becomes no longer required.
