Is it okay for a woman to marry without wali?
In the name of Allah, The Ever Merciful.
Walykum assalam brother,
The Prophet PBUH said: “ La Zawaj ella bi-wali wa-shahiday addl” - No marriage will be valid except with Wali and two witnesses and that is for both ( virgin & woman who married before).
Imam Abu- Hanifa mentioned in his fatwa that a woman who had been married before is able to marry herself . This fatwa is rejected from the majority of the Oullama because the hadith from the Prophet (swa) is very clear “no marriage will be valid without a Wali and this is for both.
Allah knows best.
