Is nikaah valid without parents
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The absolutely obligatory conditions for a marriage or nikaah to be deemed lawful in the Sight of Shariah and of Allah Subhanah are:
- Proposal by one party and acceptance by the other.
- The determination of mehr for the bride.
- The availability of at least two witnesses to the marriage contract.
- The consent of the parents/guardians (wali) of the bride.
If the above four listed conditions are honored, the nikaah will be considered legal and valid in the Sight of Shariah Law and in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; and if even one of the above listed four obligatory conditions of a nikaah are violated, the marriage will not be deemed lawful in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
