Marriage - Approaching My Parents
  • Question:

    If I like a girl I want to marry is it ok for me to approach my parents? Is this permitted in Islam and also how do I do this as I am very shy to talk about things like this with my parents.

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    The basis of all things is that they are permissible unless proven otherwise. Finding a spouse can be done in different ways through permissible means. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “I see nothing better for two people who love each other than to get married.” (Ibn Majah) What this shows us is that love is real and if you truly love someone for the right reasons, then you should seek permissible means to marry them.

    Approach your parents with a kind soft heart to heart talk which shows them that their opinion and approval is very important to you and that you want their help.

    And Allah knows best.
