The Wedding In Pictures

A week before Hari Raya Idilfitri, the new porch which will be used for the kenduri was yet to be ready. The contractor was confident about delivering it before the wedding. He did and it was one day before Hari Raya minus the paint job. I had to do the painting myself with the help of my son and son inlaw.

The porch is now ready

The Akad Nikah

Azuan's marriage to Wan Hanizah Wan Din was solemnized on the 14th of October 2007 (My best birthday gift) at Mesjid Kg. Pauh, Pasir Mas. It was done after the Isyak prayers and was solemnised by the Imam. The 'Lafaz' needed only be done once and it was over despite the butterflies swarming in Azuam's stomach. He looked composed and confident.

' Membatalkan Air Sembahyang'
This was done when you touch your wife for the first time after being wedde and thus rendering the Abolution obselete.

The Hantaran
Gifts to the bride including the monetary gift of RM6,666. The figure is paltry compared to the RM77,777 given by a millionaire to his bride, but 6,666 is significant as it is equivalent to the number of verses in The Holy Quran.

A long lost friend Tuan Haji Zainal came for the wedding. We parted ways since 1969. Now we met again after 39 years.

The above pictures more or less tell the story of my son's wedding. It is the last wedding among my children. I hope Allah will answer my prayers that his marriage and the other siblings marriages will last forever. My wife and I has gone through for 34 years and is still going strong. Till death do we part
