      Muslim Wedding

      The Nikah ceremony is regarded as the inevitable religious ritual in a Muslim marriage. As the Quranic verses say “It is He who created you from one soul and created from it its mate that he might dwell in security with her“, the ceremony holds deep meaning for the couple as they embark on a lifelong journey together. Even though the rituals in Islamic weddings are the same, the customs and traditions in different nations reflect the diversity of followers and practises within the Islamic faith.

      Most of the time, Muslim wedding receptions are commonly hosted in dedicated wedding venues. The nikah in a Muslim community is held in a mosque, where the father of the bride and the imam will preside over the Islamic wedding ceremony. A Qazi, the designated marriage officiant, will usually oversee the Muslim wedding proceedings. During the Muslim wedding ceremony, the bride and groom are to be together after nikah.

      Nikah means “marriage contract”, Following the signing of the nikah, the groom is required to offer a substantial gift to the bride as Meher or Mahr. This is a symbol of respect for the bride and acknowledgment of her self-reliance. It takes the form of a monetary amount or valuable possession that the bride is entitled to receive from the groom during the Islamic wedding. Meher is further categorised into:

      What is Nikah?

      The Nikah Ceremony, which is the kernel part of the marriage contract, takes place in the presence of witnesses such as the groom, father of the bride, Imams and other close relatives. During the Nikah, the Imam will recite verses from the Quran and impart a valuable message to the couple. As a symbol of their voluntary commitment, both the bride and the groom express their acceptance by saying the word Qabul three times. This ensures that their decision to enter into marriage is based on their own free will, and this will be recorded in the nikah certificate.

      The qazi will ask for the bride’s acceptance to marry the groom with the particular meher. The question will be asked to both bride and groom three times, and they will answer “Qabul” three times, which means “I accept”.

      The bride, groom, witnesses (mostly parents), meher, documents etc are the nikah requirements. 

      wali (father) of the bride will sign the nikah nama to ensure the legal validity of the wedding. Following Islamic rituals of nikah, the groom will approach the bride and unveil the nikah dupatta, which will be designed with the name of the couple. Then the groom will give the maher to the bride, where the halal nikah happens, and then the couple will share a morsel of sweet fruit, such as dates or sweetened milk, with each other.

      NIKAH

      After Muslim nikah, there will be an additional religious ceremony and speech conducted by the Imam. Following the nikah, the bride and groom will sit beside each other during the wedding reception. Another interesting part of the ceremony is when guests shower the bride with coins in a tradition known as Savaqah.

      Another custom at a Muslim wedding is Rukhsat. This emotional moment occurs when the bride says farewell to her family and is welcomed by her mother-in-law at her new home with the Quran.

      Walima: A Feast of Harmony

      The walima ceremony must be held to make the wedding announcement. This will be planned in order to officially announce the bride and groom’s marriage to the general public. During the ceremony, the bride must be introduced to her family and friends. In an Islamic wedding, the walima is the major ceremony, to which all guests are invited for a great feast, while the nikah is the minimal ceremony. The newlywed couple visits the bride’s family on the fourth day, where the groom is greeted with presents and a lot of love. This is the Chauthi ceremony and signifies the end of the Muslim wedding celebrations.
