A salafi brother from Madinah proposed to me and my wali accepted him but my mother wants me to marry someone from my community, a relative, so that I won’t be away from her, as she is old and needs me. Should I give up marriage to a salafi brother who is good for my deen or go back home to my mother to the land of disbelief?
Shaikh Hassan Al-Banna:
It’s upon you firstly to ensure that this man is upon good manners and (correct) religion and you must ask a lot about him.
Secondly, try to reconcile between both issues, for example, you can try to bring your mother to Jeddah or to any place where she is allowed to stay until you (achieve to be) near her and you can visit her.
