Mutually agreeing to get married

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My parents and the girls parents have totally agreed that they will do our nikaah but due to some reasons it got delayed. The girl and I have also agreed for this relation. Does this fulfil the requirements of nikaah and does it mean that we are married at the moment because both parties have agreed with family members being the witness and I will give mahr after the nikaah on papers.


A: They had agreed that you should enter into nikaah, but the agreement does not construe nikaah. You will still have to make nikaah.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
