Transgender Can Marry-- Mufti Imran
An Islamic scholar belonging to Brailvi school of thought Mufti Muhammad Imran Hanfi Qadri issued a religious decree (Fatwa) stating that a transman can marry a transwoman and vice versa but intersex person-- oeople born with physical sex characteristics that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies can not marry at all according to Islam. A transgender, declared female at birth but whose gender identity transitions to that of a man can marry a male or with a transgender who is declared male at birth but his gender identity transitions over time to that of female. But intersex person called Khunsa e Mushkil can not marry at all. Islam bestowes Trnsgenders their due share in inheritance and parents who deprive them of their share commit a sin.
