Transgender

Muhammad Ali asked 5 months ago

What is take of grand marja on transgender i.e., having mental conflict between birth-assigned sex and the desired sex. Does he consider it a valid psychological or mental disorder? And if yes, does the fiqha allows seeking treatment for this?
I know the different sexual orientations like homosexuality is totally prohibited in our religion but what is the guideline for transgenders who are suffering from severe mental distress about their gender?
