Witnesses of Marriage

Islamic Law… Nikah…

witnesses to the nikah not related to the bride…. only requirement of the law was presence of two male or one male and two female witnesses at the time of offer and acceptance irrespective of the fact that they were closely related to the parties or not…. furthermore since marriage between the parties in the present case was solemnized against wishes of their families it could not be believed that some immediate family members of the bride would have participated in the said marriage especially when there was great difference between the social/financial status of the parties…
