Marriage Services

It is He Who created you from a single person, and made his mate of like nature, in order that he might dwell with her (in love). When they are united, she bears a light burden and carries it about (unnoticed). When she grows heavy, they both pray to Allah their Lord, (saying): “If Thou give us a goodly child, we vow we shall (ever) be grateful.” (Quran 7:189)

Requirements for Marriage:

  1. Mutual agreement (Ijab-wa-Qabul) by the bride and the groom
  2. Two adult, Muslim and sane witnesses (2 males or 1 male and 2 females but one male is a must)
  3. Mahr (marriage-gift) to be paid by the groom to the bride either immediately (muajjal) or deferred (muakhkhar), or a combination of both (This is entirely the bride’s right Islamically, hence its discussion must take place only between bride and groom.)
  4. Legal guardian (Wakeel) representing the bride
  5.  Official Marriage License 

– Once all the requirements have been met, please either contact the IFSF Masjid directly at (954) 741-8130 to set up an appointment with the Imam or contact Imam directly at The Imam will then contact you and provide all additional details for you to set up a date for the Nikah and premarital counseling session. The Nikah may be valid without the premarital counseling but we highly recommend it. Further details will be provided once in contact with the Imam. 

– If you wish for your Nikah to take place at our Masjid space please contact the masjid at (954) 741-8130 to book the masjid hall and the office staff will gladly assist. Venue booking is not handled by the Imam. 

– Imam fees are $250 at IFSF and $500 at any other venue. If you would like to get married but cannot afford the fees the Imam will gladly work with you to reduce the amount or waive it. We would never allow a financial difficulty to get in the way of someone’s Nikah.
