    Perhaps:

    When will you have your nikah?

    Re: When will you do nikah

    It depends on what an English-speaking Muslim would say, I think. I don't know if you celebrate, go through or have (or something else) [a] nikah. Hopefully, someone with the relevant knowledge will be able to tell us.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: When will you do nikah

    I told "celebrate" because Untaught88 defined the term as a Muslim marriage, after reading some information about the ceremony:

    http://www.qiran.com/marriage/an_nik...c_marriage.asp
    http://www.singlemuslim.com/marriage...e_ceremony.php

    And having seen the expression "celebrate the nihak" in some articles:

    http://tribune.com.pk/story/818889/i...lki-and-dance/

    Anyway, the expression "go through the nikah" is also in use, and "have the nikah" seems to be the most common.
