Someone said to me few weeks ago there is no such thing as justice. I just looked and thought, yes there must be. But he was right, there is victims all around the world suffering! But we are no longer victims, we are survivors who’s tears have being heard. We are no longer oppressed and have survived the pain, sadness and guilt that was put in our life. We shouted, spoke out, told a loved one and fought for that peace that we truly deserved. But there comes a time, when you have looked at every avenue, searched more clues and again there is that word ” family honour” and your back to the first step. Then you think, maybe there really is no more fight to win, even with new evidence as that word “family honour” well it just won’t let you win. Then, you do think, what know!…

Most of you might be wondering or very confused like my children, why we are getting married if we have already had our nikah.
In August of 1998, day before our nikah was going to take place at a friend’s house, we were asked for a certificate (Notice of marriage) from the registry office in order for them to do our nikah (marriage). We didn’t have this piece of paper that day, as we didn’t know that we needed one, but the priest agreed to do our ceremony and we was told to get one the following Monday. That Monday was seventeen years ago and we never got round to doing our civil ceremony but this year we have decided to renew our vows in a registry office as we truly do love each other.
Muslim couples who have a traditional ‘nikah’ wedding in the UK but fail to register the marriage are not recognised as married under British law.
My advice to all Muslim couples is to protect themselves by insisting on a civil ceremony before the nikah. Mosques must register with local authorities too, so they can conduct civil marriages. “The problem is that only a handful of mosques across the country are registering themselves,”
“I don’t know why this is the case because it is very simple thing to do – all they need to do is fill out a form. Religious leaders must take a bigger responsibility to protect many Muslim couples who are unnecessarily suffering.”
We are having a very small and private wedding with just a handful of guests. But I would like you all to enjoy our big day with us from afar, as the little things, for that moment, you may look back and realize that they were actually the big things.”
To those that aren’t feeling this happiness that I feel everyday. All the answers that you search are within you and you too will get there. I’m just like you, searching for those profound questions and I work extra, extra … Continue reading →
