assalamu alaikum i did my nikah without my parents knowing, the guy is a shafi'ee, i am hanafi, when i asked a mufti if i could do my nikah without a wali, he said that the nikah will be valid, but i wanted to know if it will still be valid as he is a shafi'ee. please enlighten me on this. jazakallah wassalam


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

The Nikah of the man will not be valid. According to the Shafi Madhab, Nikah is not valid without a Wali (guardian).

Marriage is something that requires compatibilty and understanding, we advise that both husband and wife adopt the same Madhab.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
