My parents do not want me to get married, What should I do?


What should you do if you’ve told your parents you want to get married
to protect yourself, but they’ve said no your too young?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.


You should do whatever it takes to safeguard your chastity.

1)  Lower your gaze. Do not look at the opposite gender.

2)  Do not read improper literature.

3)  Do not scan illicit websites. Know well, Allah is seeing whatever you do.


After having avoided all that which aggravates ones desires, if you still have a strong urge to marry, try to fast. That will suppress your desires. Also discuss your feelings with some responsible person in the family to communicate your feelings to your parents.

In any event, always be Allah conscious and never do anything Haram as that will only compound your problem.

And Allah knows best;

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
