Q: Me and my wife to be along with my parents and her parents sat together to confirm our marriage proposal. Both parents asked us both if we are happy with each to get married and we both replied saying yes we are. Is our nikkah done and can we speak to each other now.
A: This was just to know from both of you whether you are happy. The nikaah has not yet been solemnized.
Solemnize the nikaah, announce it and then you may speak.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
