Weddings

We provide Muslim Members of the community a place to engage in sacred relationship of marriage in alignment with local laws.

In Islammarriage (Arabicنِكَاح‎, romanizedNikāḥ) is a legal contract between a man and a woman. Both the groom and the bride are to consent to the marriage of their own free wills. A formal, binding contract – verbal or on paper[1] – is considered integral to a religiously valid Islamic marriage, and outlines the rights and responsibilities of the groom and bride.

 

To hold an Islamic Nikah, three pillars must be met:

1- A verbal contract (proposal and acceptance) in which the bride side offers the marriage and the groom accepts. 

2- Two Muslim witnesses

3- A Wali/Wakeel or a guardian (like a father) who will represent the bride in her marriage.

 

Note: an official Marriage License/certificate must be obtained from the County clerk before the Islamic marriage takes place. 

Please  contact our Imam (hamed@bicnwa.com) for any question or to set an appointment for consultation or to hold the Nikah.
