Civil Marriages are not Common Law Marriages in Pakistan, Still called as Court Marriages

In Pakistan, civil marriages are not common law marriages, but a marriage with the free will of a couple, without any influence or permission from the parents of the couple is called a court marriage, though, unlike India, it is not conducted before a court of law and either not in presence of any court official, but through a lawyer and a Nikah Khawan or an official Nikah registrar, and two witnesses. The registration of marriage requires proof of age, which is generally done through the production of CNICs or any other identity documents issued by the government.

Nikah or marriage is a very important part of Islam and we all know that there are many personal laws in our country. The government has taken care of all the necessary documents needed for marriages and nikahs so that people can easily get married in Pakistan. There are other ways to get married according to your wishes and choices, but one such way is the court marriage  method. 

The court marriage is a legal marriage contract

Court marriage is the legal and valid way of doing Nikah in Pakistan. The court marriage is a legal marriage contract and the Nikah Nama and the Nadra Marriage certificate is issued by the Union Council. The certificate of court marriage can be used in other countries to get your wife or husband’s visa as well as to prove yourself as a married person.

In Pakistan, you will have to get your Nikah registered under Islamic/Shariat law if you are a Muslim and want to marry someone of the opposite sex. In order for this registration process to occur legally, both parties must get Nikah by a Nikah Khawan and a lawyer for registration of nikah along with certain prescribed documents including proof that each party has attained majority age i.e 18 years old at least on the date when the court marriage was solemnized.

“Court marriages are permitted in Islam, though they are not compulsory or recommended.”  Maulana Mohammad Akhtar Raza Khan Qadri-Al-Azhari

In an interview with The Times of India on August 29th, 2016, Maulana Mohammad Akhtar Raza Khan Qadri Al-Azhari said, “In India…court marriages are permissible in Islam.”. Court marriages are not necessary and are not recommended. Muslim couples have been advised by him that after the court marriage they will have to undergo the Nikah ceremony, which they can perform by themselves. It is recommendable that they consult with someone who is willing to do this for them if they don’t wish to do it themselves.He added that court marriages are permitted, “but only under the conditions set forth by the Islamic laws and procedures. In addition, there should not be any ulterior motives for the marriage.”Our religion does not expressly prohibit court marriages. Thus, court marriage is permitted in Islam. However, witnesses must be present in order for this to occur.

Court Marriage is a Personal Choice

Court marriage is often preferred to traditional, long-drawn-out forms of marriage for a number of reasons. Thousands of couples choose to get married in court or in the lawyer’s chamber by choice every year in Pakistan, especially in the big cities like Karachi, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and Lahore. The reason for doing so may vary depending on the couple. One of the main reasons could be a desire to give back to society. Several couples, from wealthy family backgrounds, choose to donate the money they would have spent on their weddings to a charitable cause instead. People may also choose a court marriage because of their personal priorities. A typical Pakistani wedding may not be suitable for everyone. Rather than inviting the entire family, including distant relatives, they might prefer a low-key affair with just a few close loved ones.
