(Fatwa: 302=296/M)


If the boy and girl are baligh (adult) and they happily marry in kufu (match/equal rank) then this Nikah will be valid. : کما فی الدر المختار: فنفذ نکاح حرة مکلفة بلا رضا ولی


After all, it is recommended to have the consent of parents. And, if the Nikah is out of kufu (match/equal rank) then it will not be even valid. It is prohibited to disobey parents without any justified reason:

ولہ ای للولی اذا کان عصبة الاعتراض فی غیر الکفؤ ۔۔۔ ویفتی فی غیر الکفؤ بعدم جوازہ اصلاً وھو المختار للفتوی لفساد الزمان (الدر المختار: 4/155)

Allah knows Best!
