Jaunpur, Sep 21, 2022: A Muslim American couple, who came to tour India, married each other according to Hindu traditions in Uttar Pradesh’s Jaunpur on Saturday. The couple already had a nikah 18 years ago and have nine children.

The wedding took place in Jaunpur’s Trilochan Mahadev temple. American-origin Muslim couple, Kiyamah Din Khalifa and Kesha Khalifa, were on a tour of India when they fell in love with the country’s culture and traditions and decided to get married according to Hindu tradition.

 

Nikah


The couple became so fascinated by Hindu culture during their visit to the Ghats, temples and other religious places of Varanasi that they decided to tie the knot according to Hindu customs.

According to the priest of the temple, Ravi Shankar Giri, “The couple is in their 40s and they are already married according to Muslim traditions.” The groom, Kiyamah Din Khalifa said that he is the father of nine children. Kesha Khalifa stated that her grandfather is a Hindu of Indian origin.

Pandit Govind Shastri, who accompanied the couple, said that all the rituals of marriage had been completed according to Hindu customs.

The Muslim couple from America, Kiyamah Din Khalifa and his wife Kesha, also took seven rounds in Trilochan Mahadev temple, considering fire as a witness according to Hindu rituals.

As the couple did not have a passport and visa on their wedding day, they had to go without their marriage registration certificate. However, they received it the following day, on Sunday, after submitting essential documents for marriage registration.
