Performing Nikaah On A Friday

Recommended Posts




Q: Is it sunnah to perform nikah:

a) in a masjid?
b) on a friday?
c) after asar?

A: It is Sunnah to perform the nikaah before a Muslim congregation (e.g. after a fardh salaah in the Musjid). Since people congregate in the Musjid on Friday, performing the nikaah in the Musjid on this day is considered mustahab.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

عن عائشة قالت : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أعلنوا هذا النكاح واجعلوه في المساجد واضربوا عليه بالدفوف (ترمذي #1089)

ويندب إعلانه وتقديم خطبة وكونه في مسجد يوم جمعة بعاقد رشيد وشهود عدول والاستدانة له والنظر إليها قبله وكونها دونه سنا وحسبا وعزا ومالا وفوقه خلقا وأدباوورعا وجمالا(الدر المختار 3/8)
