If a boy n girl in front of two muslim witnesses accept each other as husband n wife without any Qazi or court. Is this kind of nikah valid in the sight of islam or what is the status of this relationship?

Answer:

 

Marriage in front of witness

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 5:

5 . (Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers but chaste women among the People of the Book revealed before your time, when ye give them their due dowers and desire chastity, not lewdness nor secret intrigues. If anyone rejects faith fruitless is his work and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).


 

Shariah Law dictates and demands that four absolutely obligatory conditions must be fulfilled for a marriage to be valid in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah. If even one of these four absolutely obligatory conditions of marriage are not honored, that marriage would be invalid and void in the Sight of Shariah Law and of Allah Subhanah. The four obligatory conditions of marriage in Islam are:

  1. The proposal by one party and acceptance of the other.
  2. The determination of the mehr to be paid by the groom to the bride.
  3. The presence of two witnesses to the marriage contract.
  4. The consent of the wali or guardian of the bride to the marriage contract.

 

Your Question: Is this kind of nikah valid in the sight of islam

If a couple have merely accepted each other in front of two witnesses, and the other two obligatory conditions of marriage (determination of mehr and the consent of the brides wali) are not honored.such an acceptance would have absolutely no basis or legality in the Sight of Shariah Law or in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!

 

Your Question: what is the status of this relationship?

The mere acceptance of a couple in front of two witnesses has absolutely no legal status in the Sight of Shariah, but rather it would constitute a clear manifestation of a secret intrigue and lewdness. If the couple (Allah forbid) were to continue their relationship any further, it would constitute the evil crime of zina in the Sight of Allah Subhanah.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
