Love Marriage in Islam - Court Marriage, Pakistan

Love Marriage or Court Marriage

Love Marriage and Court Marriage is allowed in Islam & Pakistan. Love Marriage and Court Marriage has almost the same meaning in Pakistan, and it is a legal union of adult male and female without their parents. In Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Rawalpindi and other big cities, this trend is growing day by day. The words, Love marriage, court marriage and civil marriage have the same meaning in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Marriage is actually a legal union of male and female who have attained the age of 18 years. Love marriages are being solemnized before a lawyer and justice of peace where nikah khawan recites verses from The Holy Quran and Hadith before Ijab-o-Qabool (offer and acceptance) and then recites the Khutba-e-Nikkah and a prayer for the prosperity of the newly married couple.

Traditionally, marriages are solemnized in a big social gathering, in front of families, relatives, and friends of the bride and groom. The marriage ceremony comprises different functions like Dholki, Mehndi, Baraat and Valima reception. Hundreds of thousands of rupees are spent to organize and conduct a marriage. In some cases, a loan is borrowed for this purpose. There is a lot of financial pressure on the bride’s family in order to meet societal norms. Moreover, in a case, if a man is not financially stable, then society does not allow him to marry and start a happy and satisfactory family life.

Society has made marriage so much difficult and complicated that people reach to mid-thirties till they get married. This has increased the level of unrest and frustration among the masses. The other aspect of delayed marriages is that young people use immoral and haram ways to meet their emotional and physical needs. This is a reason why pre-marital relationships are common these days. We all would agree that we as humans have certain needs to fulfill. We are social animals. And we all require partners to live a peaceful family life, but our Pakistani society has made marriage too complex for both a man and a woman.

Love Marriage is Islamic and Legal

Love marriage, no doubt, is Islamic and not against any Islamic principle as well as it is the fundamental human right of every adult person. The Constitution of Pakistan allows a couple to use their right to marriage and to get into an official union through court marriage.

A Love marriage is not that complicated as it may seem. Rather, it is very simple and easy to follow. The love marriage, like all other types of marriages, is an official union of a man and a woman which is solemnized under the court of law.

In Pakistan, love marriage which is also called a court marriage, is solemnized with the help of a lawyer and a nikkah khawan, who makes the marriage Islamic, legal and official.

The Nikah-Nama which is also known as a marriage contract is issued and registered by the local Nikah Registrar and the computerized NADRA marriage certificate is issued by the Union Council.
