The Mosque has been providing Muslim couples with an appropriate location for their Nikaah (Islamic Marriage) and Civil Ceremonies. Both Islamic Marriage and the Civil Marriage are conducted at the Mosque which is carried out by a qualified Imam.

We need the following documents and information before Nikah:

• Valid Passports of the Bride and the Groom.
• Original Civil Marriage Certificate (extremely important).
• Conversion Certificate for new Muslims (Groom or Bride).
• Presence of two Muslim Male witnesses, with their ID’s.
• Presence of the Wakil (Guardian of the Bride)

• If the bride/groom has previously been married, then an Islamic divorce certificate is required.

We hold Civil Ceremony at the Mosque. Please follow the procedure mentioned below.

  1. The couple wishing to marry must both contact their local Marriage Registrar office and set a date for an appointment to give notice of their marriage, which is also called “Intention of Marriage”.
  2. If they need to give notice at the Manchester Register Office, please book a notice appointment online.
  3. Once they have obtained a date for their appointment, they need to contact the mosque office to book a date for their marriage ceremonies, allowing a notice period of at least 28 calendar days commencing the appointment date. At the appointment they have to put the Mosque’s name as the venue of their ceremony.
  4. The couple will be asked to the Register Office after 28 days to collect the marriage schedule.
  5. The Marriage Schedule must be brought to the Mosque and handed over to the office before the marriage ceremony.
  6. On the day of marriage, the Imam of the mosque who is an appointed Marriage Registrar will be present to conduct the ceremony. The marriage schedule will be completed and signed by the Imam and two witnesses along with the bride and groom and presented to the applicable parties.
  7. Marriage schedule then need to be submitted to the registry office to receive the Marriage Certificate.


  • The mosque does not and will not participate in any culturally defected marriages or sacrilegious practices relating to the sanctity of marriage.
  • Couples wishing to get married must try their very best to ensure that they have fulfilled all Islamic requirements before, during and after the marriage. This will ensure that an Islamic marriage is valid. A marriage is a bond of love and faith where commitment and future must be considered wisely. Couples who have doubt or uncertainty should consult our scholars, Marriage Bureau advisers or family support service for some friendly and straightforward advice.
