I took this opportunity to share how the Malay wedding is being performed by sharing the last wedding of our sibling, our youngest brother, Ahmad Sukiman in August 2012. I'm sure my friends from Pakistan and India would want to see some of our Malay wedding custom. As our parent passed away 10 years ago, in 2002, all 8 siblings contributed and take in-charged the whole preparation for him. The groom, in his late 20's will stay as our favorite since young days, being the youngest in the family.

The family gathered at the most impressive architecture, Masjid Beijing, inspired by Tok Guru Nik Aziz (former Kelantan MB and respected religious leader) in Rantau Panjang as many of our close families were coming from all over the place. I'm sharing some of the photos while we waited for the rest to arrive.

After everyone has gathered, we move on to the mosque nearer to the bride's house as their family could not booked the imam from the Beijing Mosque. It was too many wedding and the imam schedule was fully booked on that day. The couples wedded by the mosque imam witnessed by my 2 brothers on the groom side and the brides authorised wali @ representative as the father has passed away. The photos during the official "akad nikah" performed by the imam and the witnesses in all their happy faces.
