Marriage is considered one-half of one's faith in traditional Islam. So we know that one of the happiest moments in a couples' life together is the marriage ceremony. However, some Muslims cannot find an Imam to perform their ceremony. If you seek a mixed-faith or same-sex marriage ceremony, Imam Daayiee has a solution to your needs.
Imam Daayiee provides Islamic-styled marriage ceremonies known as "Nikah" for all who seek his services.
Imam Daayiee has over ten years experience in performing traditional
Islamic marriages for those who do not fit the traditional marriage formulations.
Whether you seek a traditional ceremony between a Muslim couple who want a progressive Imam to perform their ceremony; or a couple that seeks an intra-faith marriage between Muslims of differing madhhabs (schools of thought); or an interfaith marriage between a Muslim woman and a non-Muslim man; or a samesex couple with intrafaith or interfaith partners, Imam Daayiee is the right one for you.
Imam Daayiee provides a one-session marriage ceremony consultation for a modest fee. This is the opportunity to learn in detail what type of marriage ceremony that would work best for you. If you decide to have Imam Daayiee perform your ceremony, the consultation fee is deducted from the ceremony and/or premarital counseling fee(s).
Imam Daayiee also provides a three-session premarital counseling program to help answer questions or problems that may arise before your ceremony. For an additional fee, he can write your marriage contract, too.Of course, after the marriage ceremony, if the need arises, couples counseling is also available.
No matter where you may find yourself along the spectrum of your relationship, Imam Daayiee can help you. If you have further questions, please contact Imam Daayiee at Daayiee@aol.com.

Recognizing we live in a world of technology that uses online
services, it is important for each client to recognize from time to time such
modern technology fails. In some instances, telephone companies may drop calls,
emails are not received, Internet provider systems breakdown, Skype, AOL
Messenger, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger, may not be available due
to causes outside the control of your counselor, and may delay a scheduled
appointment. If such an event occur, your counselor is happy to discuss
with you alternative arrangements to reschedule your appointment in order to
meet your needs.
