e are engaged and we want to have nikah done


I have been engaged to my cousin for 5 years. We want to get our nikah done now
But our families are saying that nikah will be done at the time of wedding. Because of what will people say if nikah is done now. Our families are agreed on nikah but not now. So can we do nikah now by ourselves?
