Nikah without witnesses but with video recording – valid?

The Nikah was done without any witnesses, but there is a proof in the form of video recording of bride and bridegroom making proposal and acceptance. Is it valid or not according to Sharia’a?

Answer

(Fatwa: 631/542/B=1433)

As ijab-o-qubool (proper exchange of proposal and acceptance of nikah from both sides) is necessary for nikah to place, in the same way it must be done in the presence of two Muslim witnesses. Nikah without witnesses is null and void.
