ISLAMIC SHARĪ’AH COUNCIL
Here at IQRA Learning we have our own dedicated Islamic Sharī’ah Council which offers a few services relating to the Muslim faith and practices according to the Hanafi school of thought.
Religious Guidance & Advice
Our qualified religious scholars and affiliation with Islamic institutions worldwide, allow us to publish Islamic solutions, responses and edicts (fatāwa) pertaining to a wide range of contemporary issues.
Matchmaking Service – Coming soon
Marriage is most blessed when both partners are compatible with mutual understanding. For most Muslims, it becomes an obligation in order to safeguard chastity and take a step towards family life. However, many Muslims experience a cultural journey when looking for a partner which often awkward, stressful and not according to Islam.
We offer a unique service for single Muslims who want to get married according to Sunnah. We can help find a suitable match without any embarrassment or compromise in faith. Our method is compliant, honourable and advantageous. Here are our steps:
• Register and fill in a questionnaire – no photographs or pictures involved
• We try to match you with a compatible partner based upon your personality
• A viewing or meeting is arranged in a public place according to Sunnah
• No personal details or mobile numbers are handed out or exchanged
• If things move forward then an official proposal is arranged (family involvement)
• If the proposal (khitbah) is accepted then Alhamdulillah, the marriage will go ahead!
Muslim Marriage & Certificate
This service includes the following:
• A qualified Imām to perform the Islamic marriage
• Two additional qualified Imāms as witnesses
• Two Islamic marriage certificates
• One copy kept safe in our records as proof
This is for the religious service only. It is carried out in a room here or at an off-site suitable location and does not include any food or catering. Subject to availability. Terms & conditions apply.

Please note that Sharī’ah councils have no legal status and no legal binding authority under civil law. Whilst Sharī’ah is a source of guidance for Muslims, Sharī’ah councils have no legal jurisdiction in England and Wales. Thus if any decisions or recommendations are made by a Sharī’ah council that are inconsistent with domestic law (including equality policies such as the Equality Act 2010) domestic law will prevail. The Sharī’ah Council is NOT a court and their members are NOT judges. Sharī’ah councils will be acting illegally should they seek to exclude domestic law. For legal matters you should seek independent legal advice.
