    Default Is This Nikah Valid?

    OK, my dear little boys, it's time to gather around as daddy Razor gives you another riddle for you to enlighten your miserable little lives with.

    A man and a woman enter into a marriage contract. The wali is present with the witnesses and the mahr is stipulated. The imam asks the man
    "Are you happy with the lady?"
    He replies'
    "Yes, I am happy"
    Then he asks the lady
    "Are you happy with him?"
    She says
    "Yes, I am happy"

    The wali gives the lady away and the man accepts. There is nothing in the shariah preventing these two from getting married i.e blood relation, marriage relation, breastfeeding. Note the crucial point that none of these two have been previously married.

    Everyone in the audience is happy and about to congratulate the couple when a shaykh amongst them shouts out
    "This contract is invalid in the Shariah!"

    They all gasp in confusion and look to this shaykh. Why on Earth could he say this? Some members recognise him and they know why he is making the objection and that he does in fact have a basis in the Shariah for his dissent.

    What did some of the people notice?

    The woman's name was Happy, and she was talking on her cell phone to her friend, Yes, who had just asked "Is this Happy?"


    Also, just get over her man. Moping around on message boards won't change the past. There are plenty more fish in the sea.

    There has to be the actual question to the Wali, do you give your daughter, with an answer, yes.

    Just asking are you happy to the bride and groom isn't enough.

    I don't know the answer, but I'm sure it has something to do with a miraculous recovery.

    Yes, I never heard them use happy, that doesn't seem to be enough, in urdu they say "qabool hai?" do you accept?

    The answer is simple.

    The woman is called Blade.
    The man she was marrying was called Knife.
    The shaykh was called Razor.
    Everybody knows that Razor goes with Blade to form Razorblade, and that any other combination won't sound as good e.g. Knifeblade.
    Elementary my dear Watson.
