Collective Marriages Ceremony

Sponsor a Nikah

The Messenger of Allah said:

“Marriage is part of my sunnah, and whoever does not follow my sunnah has nothing to do with me.”

Allah says in the Quran:

“And among His signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in peace and tranquillity with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): Verily in that are signs for those who reflect.” [Quran 30:21]

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Dabbagh Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Dabbagh Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dabbagh Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Dabbagh Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Dabbagh Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Why are we organising Collective Marriages?

Unfortunately, many Muslim families living in poverty struggle to marry their sons and daughters.

The first biggest reason for young adults not getting married is Poverty. Poverty is such a disease which stops you from thinking further than your next meal. Thousands of these families are worried about where their next meal is going to come from and the last thing on their minds is to arrange the marriage ceremony of their son or daughter.

The second biggest reason for the lack of marriages among young adults is ignorance and cultural constraints such as high dowry demands from the bride’s side and extortionate demands for household goods from the groom’s side of the family. This results in millions of women and men living their lives with a soulmate.

The third and final reason for the lack of marriages is the custom of spending extortionate amounts of money on wedding ceremonies. This stops many parents from thinking about marrying their children at an early age and when these children at the time go into their 30s and 40s it almost becomes impossible to find a life partner for them.

Collective Marriages FAQ

Our collective marriage ceremonies are held throughout the year. Depending on the number of applications, if funds allow us we can arrange up to 100 marriages in one ceremony.

Anyone can apply to get married in our collective marriage ceremony. Upon receiving the application both the bride and groom side go through our wetting process to make sure they qualify to take part in the collective marriage ceremony.

Throughout Pakistan. Dabbagh Welfare Trust has teams of volunteers helping the poor and the needy throughout the country. They process the applications and if an area has enough demand, we will organise our collective marriage ceremony there. In general, most of our collective wedding ceremonies are held near District Faisalabad and District Gujrat.

It all depends on the number of donations we receive. We do not have a fixed package, in general, we help the groom pay the Maher and supply the couple with day-to-day use items like general furniture, daily use utensils, storage cupboards and most importantly a copy of the Quran and a prayer mat.

Marriage is the sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), unfortunately, poverty and cultural constraints stop thousands of families from marrying their sons and daughters. Dabbagh Welfare Trust not only educate these people about the importance of marriage but we also facilitate the marriages via our collective marriages programme.

First and foremost by making dua for DWT volunteers, the couple who are going to get married and their families. Secondly, these types of projects can only be set up with the help of generous donors like yourselves. We need regular donations to help us start new charitable projects and keep the existing ones running for many months and years to come. Donate generously and help us continue this great project.

Objectives of an Islamic Marriage

The Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet lay out the framework for the basis and objectives of marriage in Islam. In the ultimate Wisdom of Allah, we are told that both partners, man and woman, are created from the same source and that they should dwell in peace and tranquillity and help each other to attain Taqwa (God-consciousness).

However, the problem we face in many third-world countries is that thousands of young brothers and sisters are of marriageable age but cannot get married due to the lack of financial and social support. This is especially the case with thousands of young sisters in improvised households and communities in poor countries. The young women have less opportunity to work and support their families and the families feel burdened to find a suitable match to meet the financial needs to perform necessary marriages. The unfortunate thing is, if we cannot provide the halal means for natural human needs to be fulfilled then this may open doors to many social evils.

DWT’s marriage programme for poor families

We aim to make a model family in the community, based on Prophetic principles and therefore the institution of marriage plays a central role in this – So please help us to help our brothers and sisters in improvised communities to make this sacred union of man and wife as shown by the Prophetic examples.
