Muslim Wedding

Plan Your Tour
Muslims Weddings take place with a lot of pomp and Show. But this show is only for the people who are attending the wedding. The Muslim Weddings are generally held either in the Girls house or the Boys House as per the convenience of both the parties. All the rituals or ceremonies related to the Wedding are done in the home only. It is this from where the Rukhsati of the Bride takes place. There is dominance of red and Green Color in the Muslim Weddings.
About Muslims

Muslims are monolitic people believing in one God Only - Allah. It was the Prophet of Mohoudens Prophet Muhammed who preached its people. His sayings and teachings are followed by the clan called Muslims. Generally, the Muslim ladies have three rights - to educate themselves, to take divorce from the husband and to remarry. However, these are not as generally practised as generally stated.

There is particular region, area or State where Muslims are found in India. Whichever place you go, you are bound to see them - moving in herds, shopping, going to Madarsas (Muslim Schools), offering prayers at Dargah or Mosques and so on.
