As-salaam Alaikum
I hope you are able to assist with the situation.
I’m writing on behalf of a friend.
She’s in love with a boy for some time now and recognizes that it’s haraam.
Her parents do not approve of the boy on the basis that he has converted to Islam and his family is not Muslim…
They also object because they are aware that he’s not financially stable and the girl is also still studying.
The boy and girl both wish to make nikah ASAP to avoid further sin.  They hope that once the girl’s parents realize that they are not going to be separated and once he is financially secure, they can make the nikah public and she can go live with him then…
Is this permissible?
I understand that according to the Hanafi school of thought, the girl does not need the permission of her guardian. But how exactly is this done?
Jazakallah Khair
