Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)


Civil marriage will be valid and lawful on the condition that there were two male witnesses or one male and two female witnesses, and with all the other prerequisites of marriage in Islam had been met.


And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
