So, could that be the new normal? Syed Muntazar Mousvi and few others swapped the profligacy of marriages which has otherwise turned out to be a catastrophic end of incalculable green and salad lives to enjoy the fruits of marriage and to start new phases of life.”

Our society has reached a point where our brides and grooms are crossing 40 years of age because we have burdened our marriages with heavy customs in our society. We are fast turning into a hedonistic society where we hardly bother to look for our poor neighbours or relatives. We are highly thankful to Almighty Allah, that we remained steadfast and organised marriage simple with an intention to cross a message across table that marriage is a pious bond not any financial deal and above all we are Muslims and Islam promotes simple marriages.
“The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) also said: “Whosoever likes to follow my tradition, then he should know that marriage is from my tradition” and Nikkah should be very much simple not like nowadays where lacs of rupees are being spent on the marriage functions especially in our society. Bride groom added
