Question: alsalamu alaikum wa rahamut allah w barakatuh.Dear scholar I am facing a very hard issue in my life right now and i need you help.I met a man who was a non-muslim interested in converting to islam and he recently converted and propsed to me. I believe he is sincere in his belief other wise i wouldnt have considered him. However my father is not willing to give his blessing. he didnt refuse as he said that i should take my time to think but he is most likely against this marriage. I do not want to marry someone without my father's consent as i dont want my marriage to be invalid. however i have 2 brothers who are not against my marriage to this man... will their consent be enough? my father i know he will grow to accept this marriage in time. since my oldest brother married a new convert and he was very against it before but now he grew to love my brothers wife and their children.this is not the first time my father refuses a marriage proposal from someone i am considering he however was willing to accept a proposal i got from a man and we both knew that he - drinks slept with a dozen women doesnt pray or fast. I honestly do not trust my dad's judgement at all.. from how he considered this man and how he got married to a woman for 2 months last year who was not a muslim christian or jew and with no marriage contract. please advice if my dad's consent is required in order to make this marriage valid.Thanks for your time.
