I would like to know if a couple going to do nikaah, is there anything that they should be educated on before completing nikaah? A person was explaining to us that the couple should be weary of the C.O.P. & ANC contract. They shouldn’t go for COP & ANC (with accrual), rather go for ANC (without accrual). Is this sound advice? Also is there a procedure before the actual nikkah to register themselves before the date of nikkah, we are confused, because he said it should be done before the day of nikkah (the registration)… Jzk ul khair
Prior to entering into Nikaah, Muslims are advised to meet an Aalim of Deeni knowledge to be educated about the procedure of Nikaah, rights of spouses etc. According to the Shariah, when a man and woman enter into Nikaah, their individual wealth and possessions does not become the property of the other spouse. Generally, Nikaahs are registered after the actual Nikaah by a marriage officer appointed by the South African Department of Home Affairs, to do so before actually making Nikaah would be inaccurate as Nikaah has not yet been completed.
Allah & His Rasool know best.
