Muslim Marriage

If one party is of Muslim faith, the couple must go through a Muslim ceremony and there is no question of a civil marriage.

Muslim marriages are under the state jurisdiction and therefore must be registered with the State Religious Office. Please consult the local Religious Office for further information.
