    Posted: 28 December 2011 at 12:21am
Assalamoalaikum all borthers and sisters on this forum
Please help me in this regard.
I performed a so-called-Nikah with a man XYZ while me, him and his friend (a male witness) were sitting in a car and another male witness was on speaker phone. Both these witnesses are his friends not mine and the one on speaker phone has never seen me nor do i know him. I had no representatives nor my guardian (father) knew about it or would have permitted it.
I said the words 'I take this man as my husband' and he said 'She is my wife. Was this Nikah valid?
Moreover XYZ has repeatedly said after this nikah that you are not my wife, i have nothing to do with you and you can go off and marry whoever you want but i wont say the word talaq cuz it means nothing and the nikah was also false since you never behaved like a wife.
Please advise me.
was it nikah in the first place? Am i divorced now?
Thankyou brothers and sisters for taking out the time to read this. Plese help me.

Salaams Sister,

You need to ask a scholar this, giving him all the details. Though I do believe that without a Wali there are only a few exceptions when a marriage is valid- can be for divorced women etc.

Some others may have good links for you dear sister..

My duas for you..

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Rumi

Assalam Alikum sister according two my knowledge, two witnesses are required from both side and all of them need to sign in the document of Nikah, Nikah mean announcement but if there were not enough people which are required so i don't think so that you were married with that man but i should recommend you to ask with Islamic scholar.
