Keeping up with current times, the Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (JAWI) recently held the first online nikah ceremony in Malaysia.

This was also due to movement constraints caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

It was held at the bride’s house in Bandar Baru Wangsa Maju, Setapak, while the groom was in Setiawangsa.

The historic event was also broadcasted via Facebook Live.

It was witnessed by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs), Senator Datuk Dr Zulkifli Mohamad Al-Bakri and JAWI Director Mohd Ajib Ismail.

Although it’s never been done before in the country, the processions is not something unique to Malaysia as the United Arab Emirates was the first nation that started the trend.
