I am looking to get a nikah done, but the lady I want to marry has no Wali in the UK. Can the nikah still happen? Also, do you conduct the Nikah at your institute?

According to the Hanafi Madhhab, the nikah of a Baalighah girl without a Wali is valid.[1]

Although permissible, it is not advisable to do so due to the many complications that may arise. Also, it is important for a healthy marriage that one has the blessings of one’s parents.

As regards your second question, yes we do conduct nikahs at our institute.



Only Allah knows best.
