The Institute of Islamic Education offers its masjid and faculty for Marriage (Nikah) services. In line with the Islamic teachings of publicizing one’s marriage, IIE welcomes anyone to use its facilities for such an auspicious occasion. Marriages at IIE are facilitated by qualified and experienced scholars, and IIE offers marriage certificates in line with county guidelines.
Allah, the Most High, states in the Qur’an,“And from His signs are that He has created from amongst you spouses so that you may find tranquility in them, and He has created between you (the spouses) affection and mercy. Verily in that are signs for those that ponder,”(30:21). From this verse, along with many other verses and prophetic narrations that speak about the benefits and virtues of marriage, we learn the importance of marriage in Islam. It is when Allah, the Most High, puts blessings (barakah) in a marriage that the couple truly reaps the benefits of this union. Thus, it is praiseworthy to perform marriages in a masjid, as they are the most blessed of places to Allah, the Most High.
