The Prophet Muhammad’s (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) wonderful sunnah of marriage is a highly rewarding act of worship. Today, however, planning a wedding can be a difficult and complicated affair. Making things easier and less stressful depends on thoughtful planning and preparation. Therefore, to get you started, we have provided these straightforward instructions to assist you in finding the ideal location for your Nikah Ceremony. Getting married at Masjid Ghousia is an unforgettable experience. We are dedicated to offering a special, beautiful, affordable, and welcoming venue where you may make priceless memories with your closest family and friends.
You must designate an alternative contact at the time of booking, and you may also designate them as the main contact for concerns pertaining to your booking, to whom we will communicate on the day of your Nikah Ceremony.
In addition to their legal marriage, many couples desire real Islamic acknowledgement of their union. This straightforward service, in which the bride and groom freely consent to an Islamic marriage and the husband presents the bride with a dowry, can be performed at Masjid Ghousia.
Before setting up a Nikah, a person must examine a variety of factors, including:
1. The Nikah must be performed with the bride and groom’s consent.
2. There will be two male adults present as witnesses.
3. Mahr – (The Marriage Gift).
Only once the proper steps have been taken can the marriage-gift (Mahr) Nikkah/Marriage be performed.
Documents Needed For An Islamic Wedding (Nikah) Booking:
- The husband and wife’s current passports, along with any necessary visas for non-British passport holders.
- Evidence of a home address, whether in the UK or overseas (otherwise the address given on the booking form will be registered on the certificates).
- The bride or groom’s conversion certificate, if appropriate.
- The identity of two Muslim male witnesses was present.
- If the bride has decided to select alternative responsible male kin, the Registrar must be informed of the cause in advance. The Wali is the bride’s father or brother.
- If the woman has been married before, a divorce certificate is necessary.
