What is a Certificate of Non-Birth?

June 6, 2007

This question is answered by Wael Abdelgawad, Editor of Islamic Marriage Advice,. and Muslim Matrimonial Service.


Dear Wael,

I am a mother of a woman who converted to Islam three years ago. My daughter is in Morocco and has married recently but now I'm getting a request from her that she needs a Certificate of Non-birth. Would you please explain what this is and how it would be obtained?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Dear Kathy,

I'm sorry, I'm not familiar with this certificate. I never heard of it before. Perhaps you could inquire at your local Moroccan consulate, or ask your daughter to explain further. What about you readers, have any of you heard of this Certificate?

If any readers have some additional advice for this questioner, feel free to post your comments below.

"(O Allah), Guide us to the straight path; The path of those whom you have favored; Not those with whom you are angry; Nor those who go astray."

Best regards,
