Islamic Marriages

A 'Nikah' or a marriage contract according to Islamic (Shariah) Law may be performed at the Islamic Cultural Centre. The Nikah ceremony will be performed by any one of the appointed Imams (Muslim Ministers) of the Islamic Cultural Centre and the London Central Mosque.

The Nikah ceremony will normally take place in a hall specially arranged for that purpose. It can accommodate a fairly large number of guests. It will be helpful when booking a date for the Nikah ceremony, to specify the number of guests attending the ceremony. All persons attending the ceremony are kindly requested to observe the Islamic tradition of dressing in keeping with Islamic values. The management reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who does not comply with this request.
