Bid’ah in Marriages
Every aspect of Islam’s religion is flawless, unique, and beautiful. To be a true believer and an embodiment of Islam, one must practise all aspects of Islam.
While every aspect of Islam is important, the Mubaarak Sunnah of Nabi (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) is the heart of Islam. It’s like trying to extract the Sunnah from a dead body that doesn’t have a soul.
According to the Sunnah, the auspicious occasion of nikah, the element that brings absolute delight and abundant barakah is doing the nikah. The Sunnah recommends that the nikah be performed in the same way that Nabi (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) served with the utmost modesty and simplicity.
“The Nikah with the highest barakah is with the lowest expenditure.”
There follows a list of Bid’ah things which both men and women should avoid in the marriage party:
1- Mixing of men and women, as well as the activities that go along with it, such as
greeting and shaking hands, and men and women dancing together, because all of this is haraam and is a very serious matter.
2- Taking pictures, whether men do that amongst themselves or women do that amongst themselves.
3- Letting the husband come in to where the women are in order to take his wife.
4- Women wearing revealing, tight or short clothes amongst themselves,
because this is haraam – so how about wearing such things in front of men?
5- People should avoid spending extravagantly
or going to extremes in showing off in wedding parties, because that may wipe out the blessing.
6- The husband and wife exchanging rings and
thus imitatingthe kuffaar, thinking that this will increase the husband’s love for his wife and vice versa.
The more love and harmony there will be between them,
and the less problems they will encounter in their married life.
