Under Muslim law, there are rules concerning who can be a minor’s guardians.
- Paternal grandfather how high so ever.
- Brother and other male relations on the father’s side.
If these paternal relations are not there then the right goes to the following sets of people:
- Maternal Uncle or aunt and other maternal relations.
Under the Shia school of Law, the only guardians for marriage for minors are the father and the paternal grandfather how high so ever.0
