Virasat Nikahnama (English)
This nikahnama is inspired by an 18th century manuscript from Safavid-ruled Persia. Golden foliage and colourful central head piece are reflective of Safavid heritage.
The Arabic and Urdu calligraphy is handwritten by veteran artist Mohammed Ilyas, while the English calligraphy uses an artistic digital font.
This nikahnama is printed on high-quality canvas, tightened to a handmade wooden scroll holder and placed in a handmade velvet and satin box. On your big day, feel like a prince or princess as you take out the nikahnama from the box and unroll it from the scrollholder.

Alternatively, you can send us the details via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or via WhatsApp on +91-9810560252, after you’ve placed the order.
A soft copy of the document will be emailed for proofing twice, after which it will be printed and dispatched. Any change after the nikahnama has been printed will be done at an additional cost of Rs 700.
Please place your order at least two weeks before the date of marriage.
Two additional copies (on simple A4 sheets) of the nikahnama will be provided for legal/documentary/visa purpose.
Nikahnama, the Islamic marriage contract, is a couple’s most life-changing piece of paper. A document that inks their mutual commitment in accordance with the principles commanded in the Holy Quran.
Should it thus not be made with thought, care and love?
At Baradari, we bring to you an opportunity to make your nikahnama a piece of art.
For a touch of Islamic heritage, we’ve used Mughal, Turkish and Persian decorative elements. Each design can be personalised with the names of the couple and witnesses, date and place of marriage, and mehr amount.
To make you feel even more special on your big day, we can attach the nikahnama to a handmade wooden scroll holder and place it in a jewellery box handmade of velvet and satin.
Our nikahnamas are, thus, a blend of art and law. Use them as legal documents. Frame them for your bedroom. Or treasure them as a piece of heritage that you can pass on to your future generations.
