My Sister’s النكاح
Photographs from my sister Shadha’s nikah (النكاح) on November 21, 2009 at Masjid Iqamatiddeen on Malcolm X Boulevard in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The nikah in Islam involves a nikah nama, or marriage contract, between a Muslim man and woman. These are very intimate gatherings of family and friends, as well as members of the Muslim community. Shadha Abdulaziz, 20, and Mutassim Cox, 18.
