I wanted to know the Islamic stance on court marriages and secret marriages. Besides, how would you comment on a marriage concluded:
1. with free mutual consent of both parties
2. in the presence of two male witnesses
3. by offer and acceptance BUT a. without the permission of Guardian and b. with the intention of keeping the marriage secret until the man becomes financially sound.
Please also note that both of the spouses keep their marriage secret because they cannot get married for 2 or 3 years and they often meet each other. So in order not to be sinful, they enter into nikah. Please be specific regarding the hukm (ruling) whether it is Halal, Haram, Batil, Fasid, Makrooh.
