(Scroll down for video) A lesbian Muslim couple was married in Sweden, with the blessing of an imam.
The in-love couple decided to move from their hometown of Iran, so that they can have an open and loving lesbian relationship.
Sahar Mosleh, and Maryam Iranfar, got married in Stockholm by Imam Ludovic Mohammed Zahed,
who is originally from Algeria, but lives in South Africa, to avoid being prosecuted in his hometown as he is gay.
Zahed said that he may face 10 years in prison for being openly gay. He is close with the LGBT organization and offers to counsel and help gay couples.
The couple could also have been subjected to 50 lashes if they were caught together, which could be fatal for Mosleh, who suffers from congenital brittle bones.
The couple held their wedding ceremony during the Stockholm Pride. The couple, who met online, are already expecting their first child together. Maryam Iranfar is carrying the child.
At 3:35 in the video below, you can hear the imam talk about the wedding in English.
