Listening to one's parents

Q: I am in love with a girl and want to marry her. I told my parents to ask for her hand but they are not agreeing as they have heard that the girl does not have good character. But after meeting the girl I am more attracted to my religious obligations. Please guide me what to do.

A: If your parents feel that the girl does not have good character and mannerisms, then it is better for you to listen to them and not get married to the girl.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
