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

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

Sister in Islam,

You state, his parents aren’t willing for us. What exactly do you mean by this? They are not willing for their son to get married immediately upon completing university when you are 25 or they do not agree to you and him getting married?

When one is faced with a predicament, make dua to Allah for guidance and also consult with appropriate people to canvass solutions for the difficulty. Also, make istikharah before making any decision.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
