    Title: Nikah

    Question: Express the views (ijab-o-qubul) both boys and girls without any witness, will it be allowed as a marriage?

    Answer ID: 46397

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 992/774/H=1434) If the boy and girl do ijab-o-qubul (exchange of formal words of nikah) in privacy and there are no Shariah witnesses in the meeting then nikah shall not be valid. It is so mentioned in Fatawa Shami etc.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
