Nikah (Marriages)

"We are sorry we have stopped performing Nikah and civil ceremonies until further notice"

The Leeds Grand Mosque is licensed to conduct marriage contracts in conjunction with the Register Office.

A marriage ceremony can be conducted in one of two ways:

  1. Nikah (Islamic marriage contract) and civil contracts performed together or
  2. Nikah (Islamic marriage contract) only, if you have a civil marriage certificate.

In either case you need to:

  • Fill and submit the Marriage/Nikah application form below.
  • Bring an existing civil marriage contract to the Mosque as proof of marriage if you only require Nikah.
  • Both parties should bring a proof of identity. i.e. passport, driving license.
  • During the  marriage ceremony no catering is allowed except light sweets and it should last no longer than 1 hour.
  • The maximum number of attendees should not exceed 20 people.
  • We kindly ask attendees to dress modestly in respect of the holy place.
  • Be aware that there has been some new procedures put in place in the way we conduct the ceremony due to Coronavirus pandemic.


There is a charge of £200 for performing Nikah (Islamic marriage contract) and civil marriage together and £150 for performing only Nikah (Islamic marriage contract) at the mosque, adding travel expenses if performed outside the mosque. This is payable before the ceremony. Please note this does not include the costs of a civil marriage contract.
