Q. An Imaam of a Musjid says that Nikahs should not be performed inside the Musjid. Nikahs should be performed in the courtyard or in the section where Janaazah Salaat is performed. He says that because of the sanctity of the Musjid , Nikahs should not be performed inside. Is this correct?
A. The best place for a Nikah is the Musjid. Performing Nikah in the Musjid is not negatory of the sanctity of the Musjid. Nikahs are always performed inside the Musjid.
