Court Marriage in Pakistan is a 100% Legal Marriage

Court marriage in Pakistan is a 100% legal marriage between a man and a woman who are in the presence of two male, Muslim and sane witnesses.  If the couple is not Muslim, then witnesses should be of their own religion. The witnesses can be family members, friends, or anyone who is present at the time of this Nikah (marriage). There are no specific procedures that need to be followed for court marriage but it must be done in the presence of any two witness because, without their presence, it would not be considered valid.

The procedure for court marriages is simple and easy but sometimes it can take some time due to certain restrictions on time limits placed by different authorities. However, once these restrictions have been met, then all you will have left to do is take your wife home with you!

Love is at the core of court marriage, and Islam declares to spread the love!

Every Pakistani girl and boy dreams of being married to the love of their life. Despite the fact that love marriage/court marriage is legal in Pakistan, it is still not an easy process to get married to your beloved one. However, love is at the core of court marriage, and Islam declares to spread the love!
In order to get married to the person you love, certain legal formalities must be fulfilled. In order to have a successful love marriage, you must follow certain steps.

The word “love marriage” refers to a union of two people who are in love with each other. It is a marriage where the bride and groom choose the partners they want to marry. Unlike traditional marriages, love marriages are not arranged by parents or family members. Most parents oppose it because they believe it will damage their reputation in society. Also, they fear that their children might be tempted by someone who is not worthy of them or does not have sincere intentions for them.

Is Court Marriage Allowed in Islam and is it Legal in Pakistan?

Of course, YES. There is no restriction on court marriage in Islam. Except for the socially backward Arabian Gulf countries, in almost all Islamic countries,  like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Malaysia, and Indonesia, court marriage is allowed. In Islam, court marriage with one’s own choice is permitted. There are various types of court  marriages, and they might take place under specific circumstances. Court marriages are conducted in various Islamic countries in accordance with local laws.

In any case, if you wish to get married according to Islam’s laws, then you ought to understand the following about court marriage in Islam’s view of marriage.

The Islamic requirements for the establishment of a marriage are that the couple must be at least puberty aged.

“Court marriages are permitted in Islam, though they are not compulsory or recommended."

In an interview with The Times of India on August 29th, 2016, Maulana Mohammad Akhtar Raza Khan Qadri Al-Azhari said, “In India…court marriages are permissible in Islam.”. Court marriages are not necessary and are not recommended. Muslim couples have been advised by him that after the court marriage they will have to undergo the Nikah ceremony, which they can perform by themselves. It is recommendable that they consult with someone who is willing to do this for them if they don’t wish to do it themselves.He added that court marriages are permitted, “but only under the conditions set forth by the Islamic laws and procedures. In addition, there should not be any ulterior motives for the marriage.”Our religion does not expressly prohibit court marriages. Thus, court marriage is permitted in Islam. However, witnesses must be present in order for this to occur.

What is the Difference Between a Family Arranged Marriage and a Court Marriage?

When the couple is engaged in an arranged marriage, neither party is allowed to meet each other before the wedding, whereas in a court-married couple, each party meets before the wedding day, in order to get to know each other better before making such an important decision.
