Note:
 
An appointment must be booked for marriage (Nikah) recitation ceremony. This can be done through a telephone call to us.
 
Please note that only fully and correctly filled forms and documents can be accepted.
 
If any of the above required documents are not provided, the center can, on the basis of verbal confirmation from the soon to be couple, only perform a verbal confirmation of the marriage, without any legitimate paper certificate.
 
To avoid any future misunderstandings, we recommend that the soon to be couple consider including certain, islamically compatible, conditions in the marriage certificate. You are welcome to contact us for further details regarding this.
 
The dowry or wedding gift must be stated clearly in the form 110.
 
In the center, we offer written, verbal and audio-visual information about the basic pillars of Islam and how a non-Muslim can profess their Islamic belief. For a permanent (standard) Islamic marriage, both the bride and the groom must be Muslims. For a temporary (time based) Islamic marriage, the bride to be doesn’t need to be Muslim, but has to be of the faith of the “people of the book”. For the latter, the soon to be couple must agree on a time limit during which they would like to be married. The center offers both types of marriage services.
 
If any documents or forms are to be sent to us through postal services, the signatures must be verified through Notarius Publicus. Please contact a law firm for more details. Note that this is not a requirement when the documents are submitted to us in person.
 
Never send original documents or certificates.
 
 
For any further queries, you are welcome to contact us.
 
Imam Ali Islamic Center wishes the soon to be couple a happy married life, full of Godly blessings and joy.
