Marriage contract formulas

Q 5: I heard so many formulas used for the contract of marriage, such as "Ankahtuka", (Part No. 18; Page No. 83) "Mallaktuka" and "Zawajtuka" (I have given you in marriage), which of them is valid?

A: Any formula that indicates the contracting of marriage is sufficient to make it a valid marriage including the formulas mentioned above as well as any other word to the same effect according to the most preponderant opinion of the scholars. However, 'Ankahtuka', 'Mallaktuka' and 'Zawajtuka' are the most direct formulas. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
