It was agreed by the Punjab cabinet on Tuesday that couples planning to marry must attest to their believe in the finality of Prophethood (Khatam-e-Nabuwat) (PBUH) at the time of Nikah.
Years ago, the Punjab Assembly unanimously endorsed a resolution on the subject. In October 2021, the PML-N and PML-Q jointly presented a motion in the provincial assembly.
On the other hand, the resolution asked for including a Khatm-e-Nabuwwat section in the marriage certificate form to prevent Muslim-non-Muslim (Qadiani) marriages.
After the session, PML-Q MPA Khadija Umar told the media that several complaints had been made concerning concealing faith during marriage.
When families discover that one of their spouses is an Ahmedi, it causes a lot of problems for the families and children, she noted.
A column for oaths in the marriage certificate was approved by the provincial government in light of the resolution. Before getting married, the partners must affirm their believe in the Prophethood (PBUH).
