Muzaffarnagar (UP), Mar 31: Just days after ruling that divorce given in an inebriated condition is valid,Islamic seminary Darul-Uloom Deoband today said videography of ‘nikah' cannot be produced as an evidence of marriage and would be considered illegal under the Sharia law.
In a fatwa (edict) issued in reply to a query from a Pakistani national whether video-recording of a ‘nikah' can be used as a legal evidence to prove marriage, the Islamic seminary ruled against it, saying minimum two witnesses are mandatory during the ceremony.
Darul-Uloom Deoband had earlier issued a fatwa against video-recording and photography during ‘nikah' and declared them against the Sharia law.
On March 13, the Islamic seminary has said in a fatwa that divorce given in an inebriated condition over phone is a valid “talaq”.
The fatwa has been issued by Darul Ifta (fatwa department of the seminary) in reply to a query posted by a person, who enquired whether talaq given in an inebriated state would be considered valid.
