As-Salamu `alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa barakatuh. I want to know the Islamic ruling concerning engagement ring. Is it permissible in Islam or not? Jazakum Allah Khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I am getting married in May of 2004 and my future bride and I both wish to have candles at our wedding as it is an evening wedding. My future father-in-law states that candles are un-Islamic and are forbidden. He feels they are too much apart of the Western culture. What does Islam say about this? Is there any knowledge of the subject? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. What is the concept of walimah (wedding feast) in Islam? Shouldn’t it be held after the consummation of marriage? Is it obligatory for the groom to pay for it? Can the bride also share the expenses? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Salam Aleykum,I?m getting done Nikah in next few weeks and both parties (bride, groom and families) already mutually agreed.according with our local traditions the Nikah ceremony is holding at bride?s place with no requirements for groom presence or groom staying in different separate room. Normally Imam is doing the ceremony and is asking her 3 times if she agree with that in presence of walid. It is a very special moment for us and both we want and agreed to do it in my presence (same room) or just visually separated and eventually Imam to ask me as well. I?d like to know if it is permissible according Islam rules/guidelines to do the ceremony together in same room or is just a local tradition?Thanks,
