Marriage by telephone is permisible?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Assalam-u-Alaikum, I am a Muslim young man of 30 years of age and I am unmarried and working in Dubai. Is it possible to marry by phone? If so, what are the conditions? She is a separated Catholic Christian woman of age 41 years and lives in Australia. She is so much interested in Islam. All she wants to marry me (also I am interested too) either we meet physically here in our life or not. Please guide me in this matter. Jazaak Allahu Khairun.


The procedure of marriage via the internet is same as marriage by proxy
where one of the partners (boy or girl) propose to marry the other. The
proposal be written in the presence of two witnesses.

The two witnesses should also sign the document be sent to the other party,
for example, in a foreign land and accept the written proposal in the
presence of two witnesses. It is important to exercise extreme precaution by
verifying the proposal and its witnessing to avoid any possibility of fraud
and deception.
