Nikaah taking Allaah and Rasul as witness

Assalamaulaikum Imaam sahab,

wanted to ask you something really desperately. If a mature young boy and agirl sayas kabool three times by taking Allah and RASOOL (S.W.A.) as their witness is their marriage valid. Isnt Allah enough to keep as a witness ? And then if the guy said Talaq under anger if that marriage was accepted does that mean talaq happened? in general also under anger if any1 says talaq are they separated really? please help me out here.
ShukriyA
وعليكم السلام
باسمه تعالى
One of the conditions for the validity of Nikaah is the presence of two matured Muslim men or one man and two women, who can listen to the Ijaab (proposal) and Qubool (acceptance) of the couple.
There is no doubt that Allaah and Rasool are enough for witness. But this witness will work in the life hereafter. As regard to this life, man is not aware if Allaah and Rasool witness and hence no claim can be proved. To prove any claim in this world one has to bring his proof and witness. One can present one’s witness only when the witness is from mankind. If Allaah and Rasool are accepted in this world as witness then the door of corruption and sin will open and everyone will do what he wants abusing the witness of Allaah and Rasool. Therefore, the Nikaah is not valid in the case mentioned in the above-question.
Talaaq is to break the bond of Nikaah and when there is no Nikaah, Talaaq will not affect.
As regard to giving Talaaq in anger, Talaaq is given in anger and not under happiness. Therefore, Nikaah will nullify if Talaaq is given under anger.
والله اعلم

NOTE: TAKING RAROOL AS WITNESS HAS BEEN REGARDED SHIRK BY SOME ULAMAA. SINCE TAKING HIM AS WITNESS MEANS HE IS PRESENT EVERY WHERE AND AT THE PLACE OF NIKAAH WHILE HAVING SUCH BELIEF ABOUT RAROOLULLAAH IS REGARDED AS SHIRK.

    “Assalaamu Alaykum”
    Nikaah without a wakee lor the presence of two witnesses is not accepted in islam.The requisitesof nikaah demand the presenceofwitnesses.

    AOA;
    I want to know about the matter of nikah, i have received a problem that A boy and a girl did nikah by just saying the words of khutba of nikah and accept each other without any witness, they lived for some months and one man found them like husband and wife and ask them about nikah, they then accepted infront of that man that they did nikah like this.

    1. A boy and a girl accepted nikah like this in front of one man.

    2. now boy and a girl are living separatly with out any talaq, from last 3 years.

    3. is such nikah is valid or still valid?
    4. is there any need of talaq for their separation?
    5. if boy and girl now want to do another nikah in front of all then the current nikah will be niakh tajdeedi?
    6. can they both (girl & boy) go to marry someone else with their such previous nikah status?

    thanks,
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Nikah has certain conditions. One of them is the presence of two witnesses and announcement of marriage.
    1. In this case they were actually living in zina (adultery)
    2. since marriage never existed why ask of talaaq?
    3.There never was nikah!!!
    4. No need for talaaq.
    5. There was no nikah so this will be a REAL nikah and not a imaginary one.
    There is no previous status so they are free to marry of their wish.

    mera questions ye hai k ma ne apni dost k sath quran mjeed pr hath rkh k allah pak aor hzrat mohammad saw ko witness bna kr nikkah kia tha to kia ye humara nikkah vailad hai.humary ilawa room ma koi ni tha.
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM
    nIKAAH SIRF AUR SIRF HUZUR E AQDAS SALALAAHU ALAYHI WASALLAM KI TAALEEM KE MUTAABIQ HOSAKTA HE. sHART HE KE 2 GAWAA (INSAAN) KA HONA LAAZMI HE. bEGHAIR GAWAH NIKAAH SAHEEH NAHIN.

    Asslam O Alekum,

    main yeh jan na chahta hoon k nikah agar qazi bina kisi gawah k larke or larki ki mojodgi main parha de Allah or us k Rasool (s.a.w) ko hazir nazir jan kar. Tu nikah jaiz he?
    Wa alaykumus Salaam
    Shart ki takmeel ke beghair shaadi sahih nahin. Do gawahon ke beghair nikah sahih nahin.

  7. Farhan Farooq says:

    If a mother of a girl (whose father is dead) tell to some boys in front of 2 men or 2 women and 1 women that I have given my daughter to you, with intentions of Nikah, and both boy and girl are also happy and agree on this at that time and also the other people in the room are happy and agree to it, and both boy and girl were also present at that time, So is that Nikah Valid or not. And at that time the boy or girl didn’t say “Qabool” but later they said it on telephone.
    This is my own case, later due to some reason we got seperated without saying Talaq or anything similar, so if that type Nikah is valid, is she still my wife….
    ASSALAAMU ALAYKUM??!!!
    Ijaab (proposal) nad qabool (acceptance) has to take place in the same gathering for nikaah to be valid. Since this did not occur, the nikaah was not valid.

    AOA Mufti sahab ,

    I have a similar question, as per above your detail reply , you have stated that
    Quote
    Allaah and Rasool are enough for witness. But this witness will work in the life hereafter.
    Un-Quote:

    Indeed our all worries are for life hereafter, and this is the only concern to ask such question.

    so those who do such nikaah in privacy making Witness ALLAH (S.W.T) & MUHAMMAD (S.A.W) will be questioned for the deeds they have been doing when living togather and when separate and got married to the other persons (Male / Female) with all sharia requirements without getting Tallaq from previous relationship.

    Thanks & regards

      Remember we are bound to the rules and regulations stipulated by Shari’a. What ALLAH and his Rascal has ordained that will be final. Nikaah without witnesses is not permitted. Therefore the vow making ALLAH and his Rasool witness to the nikaah alone will not be accepted.
