You’ve probably seen photographs of people wearing a Nikkah in Makkah or Madina. If you’ve ever questioned the legalities, Saudi natives can have their Nikkah in Makkah or Masjid-Al Nabawi, however, the procedure is different for foreigners.
Foreigners can attend the Nikkah ceremony with their families in Makkah or Madina, where the names of witnesses, bride, groom, and Mahar are noted, indicating that the marriage was performed religiously. However, the official registration process is completed later in Saudi Arabia or the home nations.
As a result, people who book tickets with their families to do their Nikkah at the most blessed site on the earth can do so religiously, with the legal process taking place afterward.
