Q: My fiance is a converted muslim. His father was a Hindu. On the nikah nama what name should be used in place of fathers name? My family does not want to use a Hindu name. Can we write a Muslim relatives name? Will the nikaah be valid if using a fake name? What name should we use while performing the nikah. Can the fathers name be avoided?
A: Leave out mentioning his father’s name and just mention his name.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
