Marriages / Nikah Services

In Islam, marriage is given great importance and prestige.

Al-Misbah Academy of London (AMAL) facilitates the solemnisation of an Islamic contract of marriage( Nikaah).

The newly-married couple is provided with a formal marriage certificate (nikah certificate) to show they have been married according to Islamic Law, If you are interested in getting your marriage solemnised by a qualified Scholar from AMAL, we are happy to assist you

AMAL Requirements for a Nikah:

  • Mutual Agreement: Both families must agree or have been clearly informed of their intention to be married.
  • Religious compatibility: Both spouses must be of the same belief and creed. The Shahadah must be taken in case of a revert. If no Shahadah certificate is evident please note the whole Shahadah process will be repeated, logged, and registered at the AMAL.
  • Documents: Passport copy and a driving license or a current Utility bill. Civil Marriage certificate or booking confirmation of the same, for the day of Nikah ( if applicable).
  • Age compliance: Bride and Groom to be aged 17 years and over:

    (permission is required from parents or guardians if under 18 years of age please note that, the Imam would need time to make the best judgment and decision, based on the groom’s ability to provide maintenance which is considered obligatory (wajib) on the husband or in the event that the wife agrees to finance the husband, this too will need to be clarified. * Bride and Groom to be present: preferably in the same building/venue.

  • Bride’s Wali (guardian) or Wakeel (attorney) to be present: Marriage is a happy occasion and should not exclude the family. LFC does not support, nor conduct, a secret or a runaway marriage. The Imam conducting the marriage may call the guardians of the bride and groom to confirm their consent to the marriage, if they are not present or he is informed they are abroad.
  • In the absence of the Wali: If the Qadhi is content that permission was sought from the Wali, but his ground for refusal was on a discriminative basis; ie culture, race, caste, the Nikah will be conducted and considered valid.
  • Witnesses: Please ensure there are two male Muslim, sane and able witnesses who have a valid British passports. It is preferred that one witness is represented from either side; both the bride and groom.
  • Along with the bride Wali or Wakeel (attorney).
