    If such persons can identify themselves as man or woman on the basis of having more characteristics of either of the genders, they will be considered accordingly man or woman. If not then, they will be considered what they want to be.

    If they can perform the function of man or woman that can marry.

      There are hadiths were prophet said that Allah cursed men who imitate women and vice versa.

      Which type of people are discussed in it

      Another hadith were prophet banned a man who applied henna etc

      “Various ḥadīth state that Muhammad cursed the mukhannathun and their female equivalents, mutarajjilat, and ordered his followers to remove them from their homes.[wikipedia]”

      So if someone is feminine/masculine since childhood or due to any reasons but there gender is opposite. Are they cursed?
