Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Id like to know about the telephone nikah can you do it if a girl has been divorced and she wants to marry without the wali, can we marry on phone? and can you do nikkah?

 

Answer:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

 

  1. A nikah done over the phone will not be valid, as one of the conditions for nikah is that it be conducted in one gathering.[1]
