Question: Asalam walaikum,

I would like to find out if in Islam two people can get married without being married by their country’s law as in just the Nikkah would take place.

Thank you in advance


Answer: WaAlaikum As Salaam,

Yes, this is permissible. By doing a Nikah, both of you will be legally married in Islam.

And Allah Knows Best.
