People with gender dysphoria getting married

Q: If someone was born a male but considers himself as a female or gender dysphoria. And the same case if a female was born with gender dysphoria. Can these two people get married to each other?

A: They need to make up their minds, that if they are made by Allah Ta`ala then they need to respect the way Allah has made them. And if they are mixing issues then they need to sincerely make taubah to Allah Ta`ala, for they will confuse themselves and their partners, and as such they will not know their roles in life. Once their minds are settled and they do understand that Allah Ta`ala has made them, and Allah's way must be respected then obviously they will make taubah for the past and they will be able to live normal lives. They will not be fighting and disputing with each other nor will they have confused minds.

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