What is a blessed marriage? I have come accross a hadith stating “The most blessed nikah is the one with the least expenses.”

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

Dear Mufti Sahib, Assalam-o-alykum! I have come accross a hadith stating “The most blessed nikah is the one with the least expenses.” In modern days, many coustoms have been introduced among muslim community, like preparing the bride with special wedding dress, lightening the home, inviting the guests from outside the city, joining the ceromony in some hall, etc etc. What if a person can easily spend so much money to celebrate his wedding? Does spending more money make the nikah unblessed? please guide us with details.

Answer

The Hadith is clear. It includes the person who can even afford spending the money.

Islam emphasises on simplicity. Furthermore, the money used on special
dresses, lightening, etc. can be used for a more beneficial course, for
example, giving it to the boy and girl to set up their home and life, etc.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
