Rizky Billar and Lesti Kejora’s confession that they had a serial marriage before the marriage was legal in the state caused a public stir.
The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) explains the law on unregistered marriage.
“Siri marriage, in the sense of marriage which is carried out with the fulfillment of the conditions and pillars of marriage, but has not been registered administratively at the marriage registration officer, is legally valid in sharia,” said the chairman of the MUI, Asrorun Niam, to reporters, Thursday (30/9/2021).
Niam said that the obligations of husband and wife had already taken effect after the unregistered marriage.

But indeed, said Niam, marriages must be registered administratively for the benefit.
“Because the marriage law is legal, then both are legal as husband and wife. Thus, both of them have a husband-wife relationship with their rights and obligations, as well as the responsibilities of husband and wife. For the sake of benefit, marriages must be registered, “ said Niam.
Previously, Lesti Kejora and Rizky Billar would be reported to the police.
Both of them want to be reported on suspicion of having committed public deception due to their confession of having an unregistered marriage.
However, the reporting plan was postponed.
The East Java Indonesian Youth Congress (KPI) postponed the complaint against Lesti Kejora and Rizky Billar because they were still gathering evidence.
East Java KPI chairman Edi Prastyo revealed that one of the evidences to be collected was a statement from Buya Yahya.
Because the statement explained that the marriage between Lesti Kejora and Rizky Billar did not exist.
“Several statements from Buya Yahya. What will be used later is from Buya Yahya. Because there is no marriage above marriage, right?” said Edi via detikcom, Thursday (30/9/2021).

Edi then responded to Ustaz Maulana’s statement which explained that there was no prohibition in the religion of the marriage contract twice.
He called it multiple interpretations of fiqh.
Even so, continued Edi, his party did not have a problem with the interpretation of fiqh. However, his party only wanted to straighten out the lineage of the child currently being conceived by Lesti Kejora.
“Speaking of fiqh has multiple interpretations. If we are from KPI, we are actually straightening out the child’s lineage. Automatically if she is pregnant before her marriage is registered or registered at the KUA, that’s how her child will be. It means children out of wedlock, even though they were previously siri, ” he explained.
“So it’s still a country that is recorded by country. That’s what we studied. The lie is there.” said Eddie.
