Q:

AOA…a boy who told his mother that your decision is my decision because his father wants him to be engaged to his niece..but the boy thought that its just an engagment..and he doesnot know about his nikah..and his mother become witness at the time of his nikah..so nikah is done or not??

A:

Waalykum salam

Thank you for your question.

From your Query I understand that, your parents had your consent for the match? That consent was taken for marriage, which is only possible with Nikah.
Hence if the Nikah was recited, it is in order.

For condition for a Nikah to be valid, kindly read on the following link:
