Photographer's Note

Muslim marriage and Islamic wedding customs are traditions and practices that relate to wedding ceremonies and marriage rituals prevailing within the Muslim world. Participants in these rites belong to communities of people who have Islam as their faith.

According to the teachings of the Quran, a married Muslim couple is equated with clothing. Within this context, both husband and wife act as each other’s protector and comforter, just the way how real garments “show and conceal” the body of human beings. Thus, they are meant “for one another”.

In Islam, Polygyny is allowed with certain restrictions, however Polyandry is not. Even so, the number of Polygynist families amounts to a very small minority with the majority of Muslims practicing monogamy.
