Jakim mulls proposal for 10-year validity on pre-marriage certificate

PUTRAJAYA, Sept 1 (Bernama) — The proposed 10-year validity period for the Islamic Pre-Marriage Course certificate beginning Oct 1 (2023) as reported, is still at the consideration stage, the Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim) said in a statement today.

According to Jakim the proposal was raised to ensure that the content of the course module is more relevant and effective for prospective married couples.

Jakim said the department had discussed the proposal with the State Islamic Religious Departments.

“It is still at the proposal stage and being considered for implementation,” said Jakim.

On Wednesday (Aug 30), a portal reported Federal Territory Islamic Religious Department (Jawi) director Datuk Mohd Ajib Ismail as saying the validity period of the course certificate based on the Islamic Pre-Marriage Course Integrated Module for the purpose of applying for a Jawi Marriage Licence is not valid for more than 10 years.

Currently, the certification is valid for life.
