Salam alaikum, I'm just wondering if I wanted to get married in the future would my dad be my Wali he's not Muslim. I've read on a few websites that a non Muslim can't be a Muslims Wali but where are the actually ruling for this?! 

My understanding is that unless your father is a Muslim, he cannot be your wali. In the absence of a wali, the leader of your Muslim community or mosque can give you in marriage to the man you wish to marry.

No, a non Muslim does not have authority over a Muslim in this matter, if I remember correctly.

Some Mujtahids say that it is allowed to marry permanent or temporary a woman whose father isn’t a Muslim without consent of her father. Is it allowed to act according to these fatwas in cases where the woman is independent?

A18) Acting on the said Fatwa is permissible provided that the Mujtahed whom he follows should be ‘the most knowledgeable’

There is a more clearer fatwa somewhere. I will post it if I find it.

This is might just be one of those “outdated” ideas.. like owning slaves,  women deficient, and apostasy.
