Question : #1051 Category: Marriage - Nikkah
Subject: Civil marriage ceremony
Question: Assal-ahlaykim, I am a Muslim girl living in Australia and I am planning to marry a man who has converted to Islam with my parents blessing. We are obviously going to be married the Islamic way but the issue is his family are not Muslims and they are suggesting after we are married the Islamic way that they would also love to have a civil marriage ceremony for us in front of their friends and family. This ceremony is just their tradition that they would like to have for their side and has no religious meaning to it, it would simply just mean we would be married by law. I am opened to the idea and would love to do this to show respect for their traditions but I'm wondering if this is ok in Islam?
