Nikah on the day of Jumuah - Sunnah?

Recommended Posts

Question and Answer:

Q. is it a sunnah of our Beloved Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W) to have the nikah on the day of Jumuah?


(Query published as received)


A. There is no record of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) prescribing Nikah on the day of Jumu'ah to be Sunnah and it therefore should not be regarded as Sunnah. A person may perform Nikah on any day of the week.


Nevertheless, it is Mustahabb (preferable) according to some of the Fuqahaa (jurists) such as Allamah ibnul Humam, Imam Ibn Qudamah and Imam Zakariyya al-Ansari (Rahimahumullah) to perform Nikah on a Friday. It is also recorded that some of the Sahabah and Tabi'oon (successors of the Sahabah - Radiyallahu Anhum) preferred Nikah on this day due to the day of Friday being a blessed day.
