Marriage

Families are the building blocks of a successful society and families are formed through marriage in Islam. Like any community marriage is an occasion of great joy amongst the Muslims. The Australian Islamic Centre facilitates the solemnisation of an Islamic contract of marriage. The newly-married couple is provided with an official certificate to show they have been married according to Islamic Law.

We recommend that Ceremony is booked at least 2 weeks prior to the planned date. Please also be aware that the summer months are a busy time for Marriage ceremonies so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
