What is required to be married according to Islam? 

  1. Mutual agreement to marry between the bride and groom.
  2. The Wali (person responsible like the father, brother, grandfather…) for the bride. A Muslim woman needs her Wali to be from the righteous Muslim believers (Father, Grandfather, uncle, Brother or Son if she has one otherwise a righteous Muslim believer male). But,  for the Non- Muslim woman her Wali should be any Non- Muslim relative such as: her father or any other male close relative.
  3. At least two witnesses. They should be at least two righteous male witnesses. 
  4. Mahr (dowry) Agreement with the bride.

Who performs the Nikah? 
The Nikah is performed by our Imam, Sheikh Mostafa. He is a NYC registered marriage officiant. He can perform both Islamic ceremony and Civil marriage on the same day.

Does my Nikah mean I am legally married? 
No. The Nikah ceremony only  means you are married according to the religion of Islam. You are not legally married until you obtain a marriage license from your local government, or go through the dedicated processes your local government has in place to legally marry its residents.

Do I need a marriage license prior to the Nikah?
Yes. You must bring a NYC marriage license or the Nikah will not be conducted.

Due to Covid-19, our Masjid is only performing marriage ceremonies on Fridays either between 12:pm-1pm or 2pm -3pm . Please complete Contact form below. Our imam can be contacted directly at: imam@masjidmanhattan.com.
