Jennifer Katharine (25) has married Egyptian equestrian millionaire Nayel Nassar in a secret Muslim ceremony on the grounds of Jennifer’s estate in North Salem, New York.
A ceremony known as ‘Nikah’ is performed by Muslims. The Nikah is a religious rite that allows a Muslim couple to be lawfully married in accordance with Islamic law.
The ceremony usually includes a Qur’an reading and the exchange of vows in front of witnesses for both couples.
The Quran allows Muslim men to marry up to four women, including ‘People of the Book’, that is, Jews and Christians. Muslim women, however, are not permitted to marry non-Muslim men. Underlying the injunction is the understanding that marriage is a form of female enslavement: if a woman is bound to her husband as a slave is to her master, she could not be subordinate to an infidel.
It’s not clear if Nassar has other wives already or if he will be adding more in the future. Islam allows up to four wives as well as the right to beat them into submission if necessary.
Jennifer won’t have much to say about that and even if she did, she could be beaten into silence which is also permitted by Islamic “law”.
“…As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, beat them…” Quran 4:34
We wish the new couple all the best as much as Shariah allows for it!
