Girl under 18 getting married

Q: I am 17 years old. My mother has passed away last year and I am living with my mamo and nano. I am totally burdened to them. My sister got married last year. They want me to also get married. I am biologically 19. My age was change in childhood. Can I get my nikaah since I've heard that girls under 18 cannot get married?

A: Your nikaah will be valid according to the shariah.

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