Order of pronouncing permanent marriage

2513. If a woman and a man themselves want to recite the formula of permanent marriage, the woman should first say: Zawwajtuka nafsi Ďalas sidaqil maílum (i.e. I have made myself your wife on the agreed Mahr), and then the man should immediately respond thus: Qabiltut tazwij (i.e. I accept the marriage). In this way, the marriage contract will be in order. And if a woman and a man appoint other person to act as their representatives for pronouncing the formula of marriage, and if, for example, the name of the man is Ahmad and that of the woman is Fatimah, the representative of the woman should first say: Zawwajtuka muwakkilaka Ahmad muwakkilati Fatimah Ďalas sidaqil amílum (i.e. I have given to your client Ahmad in marriage my client Fatimah on the agreed Mahr) and thereafter the representative of the man should immediately respond thus: Qabillut tazwijali Muwakkili Ahmad Ďalas sidaqil maílum (that is, I accepted this matrimonial alliance for my client Ahmad on the agreed Mahr). Now the marriage contract is in order.
