Did Imran Khan Marry Bushra Bibi Illegally?

Questions have been raised over the marriage between Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi about whether it happened illegally.

Did Imran Khan get Married Illegally f


their first Nikkah to be not in accordance with Sharia.

A court hearing in Islamabad has revealed controversy surrounding the Nikkah (Islamic marriage) between Imran Khan and his current wife, Bushra Bibi.

The Nikkah was allegedly not conducted in accordance with Islamic Sharia law, as it occurred during her Iddat period.

Mufti Saeed, the cleric who solemnised the couple’s Nikkah, made this claim, and the hearing was presided over by Senior Civil Judge Nasr Minullah Baloch.

Saeed, who serves as the principal of a seminary, mentioned having a positive relationship with Imran Khan and being a part of his core committee.

According to Saeed, Imran Khan took him to Lahore’s DHA to officiate the couple’s Nikkah in 2018.

A woman claiming to be Bushra Bibi’s sister had assured him that all the Sharia requirements for her marriage had been fulfilled and that she and Imran Khan were free to wed.

Saeed officiated the marriage between Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi on January 1, 2018, based on the assurance of the woman.

Following the wedding, the couple began living together in Islamabad.

However, Khan contacted Saeed again in February 2018 and requested him to conduct the Nikkah again, saying that at the time of their first Nikkah, Bushra Bibi’s Iddat period had not been completed as she was divorced in November 2017.

Therefore, Khan deemed their first Nikkah to be not in accordance with Sharia.

Saeed claimed that Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi were aware of the situation and arranged their Nikkah ceremony anyway.

He also alleged that Imran Khan had confided in him that he believed marrying Bushra would lead to him becoming the prime minister of Pakistan.

The alleged un-Islamic Nikkah of Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi was brought to light by a petition filed by Muhammad Hanif, a citizen of Pakistan.

Hanif approached Saeed after prayers on the fourth day of Ramadan and inquired about the marriage of Imran and Bushra, to which he revealed the details.

The court has adjourned further hearings on the case until April 19, 2023.

This controversy has caused a stir in Pakistan as many people are questioning the legitimacy of Imran Khan’s marriage and whether he obtained his position as prime minister through unethical means.

The case has also raised concerns about the role of religious clerics in solemnising marriages and whether they are properly adhering to Sharia law.

The outcome of the case remains to be seen, but it has certainly brought attention to the issue of Nikkah and its legal requirements in Pakistan.
