a.) Describe the events which take place when a Muslim couple get married. (8)

Marriage laws differ in different locations across the world.

In Islam, the only people that have to be present at a Muslim wedding are a bride's representative (usually the bride's father), and two witnesses. Muslim weddings are normally held at the Mosque or at home; they don't have to be large affairs because besides the bride and groom, only a few people need to be there.

The local Imam usually holds the ceremony. The Imam will recite verses from the Qur'an. He will also bless the marriage, blessing it with hope that it will be successful and last their lifetime. The Imam will regularly recite verses from the Qur'an.
