How to get marriage certificate for Muslims in Tamilnadu From the south side of Tamilnadu, Islam stretches across a diverse terrain of politics and culture with followers and practices as varied as the states from which they hail. Islamic Nikah in Islam is viewed as a religious obligation, a contract between the couple and Allah. Custom Practices in Tamilnadu The only requirement for Muslim Nikah is the signing of a Islamic Nikah contract. Islamic Nikah traditions differ depending on culture, Islamic sect, and observance of gender separation rules. Most Islamic Nikahs are not held in mosques, and men and women remain separate during the ceremony and reception. Since Islam sanctions no official clergy, any Muslim who understands Islamic tradition can officiate a wedding. If you are having your wedding in a mosque, many have Islamic Nikah officers, called qazi or madhun, who can oversee the Islamic Nikah. Meher The Islamic Nikah contract includes a meher—a formal statement specifying the monetary amount the groom will give the bride. There are two parts to the meher: a prompt due before the Islamic Nikah is consummated and a deferred amount given to the bride throughout her life. Today, many couples use the ring as the prompt because the groom presents it during the ceremony. The deferred amount can be a small sum—a formality—or an actual gift of money, land, jewelry, or even an education. The gift belongs to the bride to use as she pleases, unless the Islamic Nikah breaks up before consummation. The meher is considered the bride's security and guarantee of freedom within the Islamic Nikah in Tamilnadu. Nikah process in Tamilnadu The Islamic Nikah contract is signed in a nikah ceremony, in which the groom or his representative proposes to the bride in front of at least two Muslim witnesses, stating the details of the meher. The bride and groom demonstrate their free will by repeating the word qabul ("I accept," in Arabic) three times. Then the couple and two male witnesses sign the contract, making the Islamic Nikah legal according to civil and religious law. Following traditional Islamic customs, the bride and groom may share a piece of sweet and fruit, such as a date. If men and women are separated for the ceremony, a male representative called a wali acts in the bride's behalf during the nikah.Normally the father of bride will be a natural Wali. If the father not able to sign as Wali, he can appoint anybody as Vakil on his behalf to act as Wali. Vows and Blessings The officiant may add an additional religious ceremony following the nikah, which usually includes a recitation of the Fatihah—the first chapter of the Quran—and durud (blessings). Most Muslim couples do not recite vows; rather, they listen as their officiant speaks about the meaning of Islamic Nikah and their responsibilities to each other and to Allah. However, some Muslim brides and grooms do say vows, such as this common recitation: Bride: "I, (bride's name) offer you myself in Islamic Nikah in accordance with the instructions of the Holy Quran and the Holy Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him. I pledge, in honesty and with sincerity, to be for you an obedient and faithful wife." Groom: "I pledge, in honesty and sincerity, to be for you a faithful and helpful husband."
