Secret nikaah

Q: A girl I know has done a nikaah with her boss. She did not have her guardian present and there was no written documents. They had a supposed molvi reading the nikaah and two witnesses. It was all verbal. Does the nikaah stand?

A: If the boss was of her match and the same social standing then the nikaah is valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
