A heartwarming video has taken social media by storm recently, showing an “Akad Nikah” or solemnisation ceremony of a Malaysian couple in Kelantan using sign language.
The groom, identified as Hakim, is differently-abled, but that doesn’t stop him from marrying the love of his life, Yuyu and performing the Nikah Islamic ceremony.
Shared by wedding photographer @abesolution9911 on TikTok, the video has been viewed over 8.3 million times and garnered over 681,000 likes as of the time of writing.
In the video, the groom’s mother can be seen helping out with the ceremony by being Hakim’s interpreter, communicating to him what the qadi or marriage officiant said and also translating what he said to the crowd.
Besides that, the caring mother also tirelessly interpreted the khutbah or sermon by the marriage officiant to his son.
