Nikaah (marriage) is a sacred social contract between bride and groom and is strongly encouraged in Islam. It is declared to be one half of a Muslim’s faith. In another narration, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has been reported to have said,
‘Do not delay in three things; 1) The offering of the obligatory prayer. 2) The offering of the funeral prayer when the deceased’s body is present. 3) The marriage of a woman when her suitable match is found’
There are a number of things to be taken into consideration before one can arrange a Nikah such as:
1. Mutual consent from both the bride and groom for the Nikah (marriage)
2. Two adult witnesses who will be present at the Nikah
3. Mahr – The marriage-gift (Mahr) is a divine injunction. The giving of mahr to the bride by the groom is an essential part of the contract
