al fatiha is the first chapter of the quran.. Basically it is a ceremony where he formally asks for your hand in marriage. It is supposed to be set up by your family and your father or the eldest man is supposed to accept the offer. After he agrees then they read together the first sura in the quran (al fatiha) and drink sharbat. But it is basically like your wedding ceremony. you dress like you would to your wedding except you can pick any dress you would like to (doesn’t have to be white). Katb el-Kitab is the official marriage ceremony which is normally held in a mosque.

@SandyDollHair: well, yes and no. Technically, you are supposed to always cover your head in the presence of men that are not in your direct family as well as non muslim females. The Imam will be there, your friends.. and your Fiance who is not yet your husband and whoever else you invite. It would be polite to cover your head for religion’s sake and respect for the Imam. No, its not in a mosque but it is still a religious and cultural ceremony. BUT you can wear whatever you want, you wont be stoned in your own home lol

From what I know, and have done my self, is the Fatiha is sort of like an Engagement agreement. Technically your in the ” Engaged” phase – for him and you to be considered hubby and wifey you guys would need to see a shiekh ( either he comes to you or you go to a masjid – mosque) and he would write the marriage contract. You would definetly need  2 male witnesses.. how about you call your nearest Islamic center and ask them what should be done !

(: hope all works out for you!
