Time of Walimah

 

Nasihah (Advice): Walimah (The feast after marriage)

 

Anas Radhiallahu Anhu reported that Abdur Rahmaan Ibn Awf Radhiallahu Anhu married a woman, the mahr (bridal gift) being gold equal in weight to a date pit and Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said to him: “Host a Walimah (feast) even if it is only with a sheep” (Muslim)

Question and Answer:

 

  1. Should a Walimah be done before or after the consummation of a Nikah?

 

(Question published as received)

 

 

  1. Walimah is a Sunnah of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alahi Wasallam.

 

The Walimahs of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam were immediately after the consummation of marriage.

 

However, if one wishes to have a Walima after the Nikah and before the consummation of marriage that too will be valid.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
