Nikah on skype

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Fatwa.org.au
Is nikah done on Skype valid?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

No, nikah done on Skype will not be valid. For nikah to be valid, one of the conditions is that the ijab (offer) and qubool (acceptance) must be done in one place. This condition cannot be fulfilled if the nikah is done on Skype.

Also, read the following answer:

(Al-Bahr Ar-Raiq: 3/83; Badaa’i As-Sanaa’i: 2/348; Raddul Muhtaar: 3/14, 2/114; Jadeed Fiqhi Masa’il: 1/192)

And Allah knows best.
