Mufti Menk discusses how to perform Nikkah in a sunnah way. The key is to keep it simple. It is a religious ruling and not a social gathering. When we go from the path of the sunnah, bad things can happen in marriages and the wedding itself.
When a couple has just carried out their nikkah, it is traditional that the man will go and sit with his friends and the wife has to sit with the women. They have looked forward to this day for a long time so the husband and wife should sit together! Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf explains.
