Q: I got married secretly in a car whilst I was waiting for my future wife. Me and my 2 male friends were under the influence of drugs (weed) so when I said to her, will you marry me, she said yes. I asked them did you hear that. They said no. So I said it again they said no we didn’t hear her and laughed. The 3rd time I said it, they laughed and said yea yea, but I don’t really think they heard her say yes. Is my nikah valid due to the witnesses being under the influence of drugs and not hearing her say yes?
A: If they say that they heard then the nikaah is valid. If you are in doubt then redo the nikaah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
