Wedding ceremony (Nikah) in Islam


The Muslim wedding, also known as the Nikah ceremony, symbolizes the process of sacred unity of marriage between a man and a woman. It gives not only the right for legal family relations, conjoint domestic life and bearing children, but demands undertaking mutual obligations as well.

In accordance with traditions, Nikah is obligatory for Muslims willing to marry. Legal marriage registration solely cannot substitute Nikah.
