Pearl of Wisdom

when an atheist asked him, 'Are deeds not weighed?' replied, 'No. Deeds are not bodies [themselves], but descriptions of what has been done. Only one who is ignorant of things or does not know their weight or lightness would need to weigh, and verily nothing is hidden from Allah.' And he asked, 'So what is the meaning of the scale?' He said, 'Justice.' He said, 'So what does it mean in His Book: ''As for those whose deeds weigh heavy'?' He AS) replied, 'He whose [good] deeds outnumber.?

Question : #291 Category: Marriage - Nikkah
Subject: Reading marriage formula ourselves
Question: Is it permissible for a man and a woman to read the formula of marriage contract themselves. What is formula, please?
Answer: It is permissible for a man and a woman to recite the formula of the temporary marriage (Mut'ah), after having agreed on the period of marriage and the amount of Mahr.

Hence, if the woman says: Zawwajtuka nafsi fil muddatil ma'lumati 'alal mahril ma'lum (i.e. I have made myself your wife for an agreed period and agreed Mahr), and then the man immediately responds thus:
Qabiltu azzewaja lenafsi hakaza (i.e. I have accepted the marriage as was agreed.), the marriage will be in order.

And the marriage will also be in order if they appoint other persons to act as their representatives.
