Ask Imaam

Is it haraam (unlawful) to perform a non religious ceremony with a justice of piece after having done a nikaah? And is it haraam for a Muslim bride to walk down the aisle and perform this type of ceremony?

There is nothing wrong for you in making a marriage ceremony with a justice of peace for legal purposes if you have already performed the nikah as required by Islam. It is also equally permissible for a Muslim bride to walk down the aisle for this purpose.

Having said this, however, it had been ideal and advisable for you to get everything done in one simple ceremony: combining both religious and legal if you are living in a city where there is a mosque; for generally certian Imams and Institutions have the license to solemnize marriage according to the laws of the province; and so he would be able to complete both requirements, religious and legal, in which case no such question would ever arise.

Golden Mosque is one of those organisations that can combine both the religious and legal marriage, please contact the masjid for further details.
