Nikah over Nikah


Can we do nikah on nikah with the same person? For example if the first nikah is done secretly in court whereas the other nikah is to be done infront of parents.


Assalamu alaykum

If the first Nikah recited involved a girl who is a virgin, the Nikah is void because it was without the consent of the father, which is the main condition for the Nikah to be valid.

Reciting Nikah over Nikah is ok. But in your case it needs more clarification.

Good luck
