Nikah in Muharram or Safar

Nasihah (Advice): There is no superstition in Islam

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (Radiyallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There is no Adwa (contagion, transmission of infectious disease without the permission of Allaah), no Tiyarah (superstitious belief in bird omens), no haamah [refers to an ignorant tradition described variously as: a worm which infests the grave of a murder victim until he is avenged; an owl; or the bones of a dead person turned into a bird that could fly), and no Safar (the month of Safar was regarded as “unlucky” during the Jaahiliyyah).” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #: 5757)
