The Muslim wedding, also known as the Nikah ceremony, is one of the most celebrated occasions in Islam because marriage is a Prophetic tradition. With more than 1.9 billion Muslims around the world, the traditions followed at a wedding can differ greatly depending on families, sects, and cultures but the fundamentals of the Nikah ceremony and getting married as a Muslim are always the same.

How to Plan a Nikah Ceremony

Once the couple has agreed to get married, planning a Nikah is similar to other events but the first thing to do is have all the religious requirements in place. Couples will often pick a date and decide on the venue. If the Nikah will be held at the mosque, get a time and date confirmed with the imam and invite your family and friends. The couple also needs to decide if they will serve food at a different location.

The nikah is the wedding ceremony, and it is relatively short and simple. The nikah usually takes place in a mosque but can happen anywhere like at a hotel ballroom or in a home. If the nikah is taking place in a mosque, guests will be asked to remove their shoes out of respect for the holy space. In addition to the bride and groom, the key people in the nikah are the parents of the couple, two witnesses from both sides, and the Imam, or spiritual leader who officiates the wedding.
