Additional Information

Nikah (Islamic marriage) is an important part of a Muslim’s life. Islam does not encourage a life of celibacy. Marriage not only ensures a healthy family structure but preserves goodness in the community. The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Marriage is part of my sunnah, and whoever does not follow my sunnah has nothing to do with me.” [Ibn Majah]

The Sharee Council conducts nikahs at its premises. A nikah certificate is provided to both husband and wife; a certificate is also retained by the Sharee Council for its records.

In light of Quranic guidance, all important affairs in life should be substantiated in writing. The advantages of retaining an Islamic marriage document are obvious. Often foreign embassies in the UK of Muslim countries also ask for documentation issued by a Sharee Council to substantiate your Islamic affairs, such as Islamic marriage and divorce.
