A couple from Birmingham, Alabama, decided to fake their wedding by going to a mosque.
The couple was reportedly invited by the Imam of the Islamic Society of Birmingham.
The ceremony, however, went wrong and the bride-to-be and her boyfriend were arrested for violating the Islamic Shari’a.
According to ABC News, the bride and boyfriend were taken to the Imam’s house and given a court date for July 31.
The Imam told ABC News that he didn’t allow the couple to have any contact with their children until after their wedding ceremony.ABC News says the Imam also told ABC that he had a similar incident with a Muslim couple from Alabama in 2010.
The mosque’s website says it offers an opportunity to marry at the Imam Muhammad Mosque.
The imam said that the imam’s wife has told him that she will be staying with her mother-in-law in Pakistan.
