I'm Married


THE SOLEMNIZATION (11.11.11)

The akad nikah was the most nerve wrecking step for me to becoming a husband... 

"Aku terima nikah Azim binti Mohammad Allaudin dengan mas kahwin tiga ratus ringgit tunai"

There, the words do appear simple but saying it in one breath was like the hardest thing on earth to do at that moment because of the pressure... What kind of pressure u ask? Guys, u'll know when u get there... The pressure to not screw it up, the pressure from the full of anticipation crowd, the pressure from tok kadi and etc... No wonder there are so many who couldn't do it just once...

Nonetheless, I did it... Only once... Like a boss... Owh yeah~


The most fearful thing for the groom is of course, the questions from the tok kadi... Before the akad, after the khutbah had been read and a short briefing from the tok kadi, finally the questions were asked... 

"Apakah rukun nikah?"

"Apakah rukun iman?"

"Apakah rukun Islam?"

Three simple questions... It was all good for me because I had memorized all of the answers... My friends asked me to and I'm so thankful for that... Though I did stutter a bit because I was extremely nervous... My cousin told me that I looked pale at that time... 

Actually, it's up to the tok kadi to whether to ask questions or not and what questions to give to the groom... Some of them don't ask questions and prefer to go straight to the akad... Whereas, some prefer to give so much questions just to confirm that the groom is truly Muslim... My friend told me that in the state of Johor, the tok kadi will ask questions or interview the bride and groom during the registration for kahwin... So, Johor friends, better be prepared before u send in the registration forms...


After the akad, came the "Upacara Membatalkan Air Sembahyang"... This is the part when the groom put the wedding ring and/or bracelet onto the bride's finger or wrist... It was really really awkward for me and my wifey because everyone's watching at that time... I came to her and gave salam, "Assalammualaikum...", put on the bracelet and wedding ring and lastly kissed her on the forehead... 



THE WEDDING RECEPTION (12.11.11)

The next day was the wedding reception at my wifey's house in Balakong, Cheras... When I woke up that morning, I still couldn't believe that I'm finally married... It felt like it was all a dream... A really sweet dream... I told myself, "A really huge step has been taken... Now to conquer the rest of the challenges... We're doing this together..."


I was wonderfully happy to see most of my friends there... Being surrounded by most of my wifey's family members who I've just met once or twice was a bit awkward, so it felt so good to see familiar faces... We laughed and hugged and took pictures... This is why close friends and family members must come to weddings... Without them, the bride and groom could feel a bit lonely... Thank u so much for coming guys... I really really appreciate it... :-)

Being the center of attention, all camera lenses and flashes were directed on us... Yeap, I have so many pictures posted on my Facebook wall... Soon, I myself shall upload more photos... Need to wait for the photographer to finish editing them...

The ceremony was so beautiful and I love my family members and my friends so much... Thanks again for those who helped making it happen and those who came to celebrate... The reception at my place at Terengganu will be on the 26th of November... Be sure to come guys :-)
