It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love). When they are united, she bears a light burden and carries it about (unnoticed).

Requirements for Marriage:

1. Mutual agreement (Ijab-wa-Qabul) by the bride and the groom

2. Two adult, Muslim and sane witnesses (2 males or 1 male and 2 females but one male is must)

3. Mahr (marriage-gift) to be paid by the groom to the bride either immediately (muajjal) or deferred (muakhkhar) , or a combination of both (This is entirely the bride’s right Islamically, hence its discussion must take place only between bride and groom.)

4. Legal guardian (Wakeel) representing the bride

5. Official Marriage License

Once all the requirements have been met, please contact us. The Imam will then contact you and provide all additional details for you to set up a date for the Nikah and premarital counseling session. The Nikah may be valid without the premarital counseling but we highly recommend it. Further details will be provided once in contact with the Imam.

– Imam fees are $250 at Masjid Al Nur and $500 at any other venue. If you would like to get married but cannot afford the fees the Imam will gladly work with you to reduce the amount or waive it. We would never allow a financial difficulty to get in the way of someone’s Nikah.
