The event was... in my humble opinion.. beyond awesome :D. Alhamdulillah!
The segregation rocked. The groom only came inside at the end. And there was no 'weird public displays of affection' ... no idiotic rasams, and the dars was pretty cool. The dua at the end of the dars was cooler, in the sense that it asked Allah SWT for 'saving the next generation' and the best dua was that O Allah, Please Accept this Nikah as a Koshish (effort) to Please you and as an attempt to follow the Sunnah of Your Messenger SAW.
I am too exhausted to elaborate more. But I am surely glad of the fact that people came, they liked what they saw, they got SOME message from the taqreeb, there was NO music, no 'tafreeh' and the event ended around maghrib time.
Alhamdulillah ! :)
