We provide Muslim Members of the community a place to engage in sacred relationship of marriage in alignment with local laws.
In Islam, marriage (Arabic: نِكَاح, romanized: Nikāḥ) 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 – 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any question or to set an appointment for consultation or to hold the Nikah.
