Nikah Without Witness/es


A guy performs nikah himself with a girl taking Allah as his Witness only. The girl accepts him. He says she is his wife now. What is the ruling on this?


The nikah is in order and they are now husband and wife. Having a witness
for nikah is not wajib! ( witness for talaq is necessary). It is worth
mentioning also that if the girl was a virgin then the consent of her
father was mandatory!
May Allah help us faithfully live in this dunya that is to finish Soon. Ameen
