Can a Haji perform Nikah?


As salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu,

My question is if we are unable to find a molvi to perform nikah then can a Haji who is the bridegroom’s father perform nikah?

JazakAllah Khayran


Wa Alaykum Salam WR WB,

Yes, it will be permissible. However, it will be advisable that the guardian or a pious and respectable figure who is capable of performing the nikah ceremony perform it. Additionally, it should ensured that the rites are carried out in accordance to Shariah and all un-Islamic action are avoided.
