Someone asked me today whether it was obligatory just to do a nikah and nothing else or is the marriage cermony compulsory  as well? 
She was saying that the marriage part is compulsory and not the nikah? 
I said the nikah must be compulsory as long as witnesses are present and people don’t have to do ceremony but will find out and let her know.
Please if you can answer this.
