INTRODUCTION
The innovations incorporated in wedding ceremonies and theviolation of the Shari'ah are alarming to any Allah fearing person, not to speak of the expense incurred at a time whennearly half the Ummah is barely making ends meet.This booklet aims at explaining the origins of wedding ritualsin this day and age, with the hope that individuals can assesshow deeply they have immersed themselves in imitating thenon-Muslims. The social pressures of weddings are analysedand examples of an Islamic wedding from the first generationare cited. Numerous Ayah from the Holy Qur'an and ahadithare also quoted for the unbiased individual to take heed andmake an objective view.We pray to Almighty Allah that this booklet becomes a sourceof inspiration to conduct weddings in accordance with theShari'ah-Ameen.
“O Mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam) and from him He created his wife (Eve), and from them He created many men and women. Fear Allah throughWhom you demand your mutual (rights), and (reverence) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah ever watches over you.” 
 AN NISA 1

I
the All Mercifulhas promised to shower upon us. Unfortunately many of ourintentions and actions have become diametrically opposed to Islamicteachings.One such great misery upon our community is to be witnessed at weddings. This great event where the union of two individuals shapestheir whole future life together has become an occasion of obsceneviolation of the Shari'ah. It is an occasion in which Allah's
I
merciesand blessings should be sought with great fervour. However, weopenly and unashamedly violate every command of Allah

as agroup. Instead of seeking the Mercies and Blessings of Allah

weinvite His wrath.Not only are the two respective families of the bride and the groomsatisfied in breaking every rule of the Shari'ah, but they Amass
