Muslim Marriage in Malaysia

Hi I am from Pakistan. Can anyone guide me regarding Muslim marriage in Malaysia. I am properly aware of all requirements. But my case is a bit different. Let me explain.
      I am Muslim from Pakistan and my fiancee is Buddhist but now she is ready to accept Islam. So I will go to Malaysia next month and after conversion, we will start our marriage process. But one this is continually making me worried. While checking the marriage requirements, I found out that guardian (father, mother, sister, uncle) of girl must be present at the time of Nikah. But in my case my fiancee is ready to accept Islam but her other family members are not accepting and they are not happy with her. So in this case, presence of my fiancee's parents is necessary or not?   
    I shall be very thankful and appreciate your proper answer.

Asslam-o-Alaikum Brother first of all i in your case if girl is ready to accept islam and willing to be a Muslim she need to go to agama islam one of the Department who will change her identify as a Muslim
that time she can bring her any two close friends that can be a witness she is willing to be a Muslim without any pressure then they will proceed her documents like her IC like we call in Pakistan Nic in that condition if you will be with her in this process than agama islam will fully support you and give training to her about Islam she need to attends class for may be two week or one month and when you want to marry with her that time most of ladies must get their parents but if parents not willing to join her still she can do without parents but she need two guardians like any cousin or very close friend with her bcz she is Malaysian and sure have some peoples who can help for her and can be guardians for her new life.

i hope this knowledge will help you for your new life and wish you good luck brother.

Dear Imran Ashraf,

      Thanks for your precious time and information. I am sure this information will help me a lot. Please tell me one more thing. As you told that my future wife will have to take classes after accepting Islam so we can get married soon after accepting Islam or we will have to wait till classes end.
      Second question is that 2 guardians should be well known to my future wife or I can arrange 4 witnesses in total for marriage? 2 witnesses from my side and 2 from my wife's side?

Always welcome brother

witness from your wife she have to request to whom she know. because i don't think someone unknown can go with her. from her side she can bring anyone whom she know and other thing you can proceed your marriage there before the classes bcz that i think depend on her if she willing to go regularly if she don't go than also not any issue but i think so if she will not go to attend the classes she will not fully aware about our Religion its depend on her brother and witness from your side that is depend on you want to bring to who if you think your family member can go with you that is more good if not possible you still can bring any Pakistani friends  that is not any issue. :)

I have gotten proper answer of my question. I will request my future wife keep attending classes. And I have many friends in Malaysia who can be witness for her conversion and for marriage. So she will arrange two witnesses on her side. Dear imran thanks for your cooperation. Pray for me and for my family. I will submit post again if I need further information regarding marriage. Thanks again

AND "So in this case, presence of my fiancee's parents is necessary or not?"...  - NO SUCH CONDITION AS 'A MUST' HAS BEING APPLIED UNLESS THE GIRL'S FATHER OR BROTHER IS A MUSLIM AND REQUIRE TO BE A WALI FOR THE AQAD NIQAH. OTHERS OF THE FAMILY MEMBERS ARE NOT NECESSARY BUT STILL CAN ATTEND THE NIQAH CEREMONY AS THEIR WISH.

B) FOR A FUTURE WIFE/HUSBAND THAT CONVERTED TO ISLAM WITHOUT ANY MUSLIM FAMILY MEMBERS (FATHER/BROTHER) AS MENTIONED, ISLAMIC DEPARTMENT OF STATE WILL APPOINT A 'HAKIM' TO BE A WALI FOR FUTURE WIFE DURING THE AQAD, 'HAKIM' WILL ATTEND.

C) THE PROCESS IS SHORT INTERVIEW WILL BE HELD IN THE ISLAMIC DEPT OFFICE FOR BOTH OF YOU ONCE YOU SUBMIT THE APPLICATION FORM TO REGISTER YOUR MARRIAGE. PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR DATE & TIME OF NIQAH AND VENUE.

D) DIFFERENT STATE IS HAVING A DIFFERENT POLICY OTHER THAN THE STANDARD REQUIREMENTS AS MENTIONED ABOVE. THEREFORE, FIRST,
CONFIRM THE STATE YOU INTEND TO NIQAH, GET THE APPLICATION FORM AND STICK TO ONE STATE DEPT OF ISLAMIC ON ALL THE SUBMISSION OF DOCS AND ALL NECESSARY PROCESS. DO NOT MIX AND LIAISE WITH OTHER/DIFFERENT STATE OF ISLAMIC DEPT.
EXAMPLE: IF YOU CHOOSE KUALA LUMPUR, IT'S UNDER WILAYAH PERSEKUTUAN, THE STATE DEPT CALLED 'JAWI', IF YOU CHOOSE SELANGOR, IT CALLED 'JAIS'.

HOPING THE BOTH INFO WILL HELP.

THANK YOU

BEST REGARDS

Shafiqbd - if your Brother in Law is staying illegally in Malaysia he will probably not easily be able to marry a Malaysian. It will become clear, if he tries, that he is an illegal immigrant and he will probably be deported and banned for 5 years.

Even if he does get some help to marry by the backdoor, there could be immigration problems when he tries to get a Long Term Social Visit Pass as the spouse of a Malaysian.

If he is doing business without any proper visa he is also most likely evading income tax. So additional problems may occur.

The above link explains the steps and paperwork that will have to take place for a foreigner (Muslim) to marry a Malaysian. I understand there are very few records in Bangladesh so making sure it is clear in official records that he is already married might be relevant.

The sad thing is perhaps the Malaysian lady is not aware of his first family. It sounds like a very typical "marriage of convenience" and the authorities in Malaysia are aware of these situations and there are hurdles in place to inconvenience those who take part in such activities.

Hi Gravitas...

   ur information will give me some courage and hope to fix my sisters family..I will knock any door or go to any extend to fix this Issue...Thank  you once again..

Helloo I have questions regarding foreigners get married in Malaysia, Is it compulsory to have single status certificate?

Yes you really need single status certificate from your home country before coming to Malaysia. And this single status certificate must be attested from the foreign office of your home county and then after coming to Malaysia, the same certificate will again be attested by foreign ministry of Malaysia. One of its offices is in putrajaya.
