All villagers of my area did lunch after Nikha on occasion of marriage ceremony. Because our relatives and friend came from other village and they given importance for nikha that’s why we arrange lunch after nikha. If we arrange Walima on next day nobody can came for Walima that’s why we count that lunch as a Walima. Is this Ture!

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

“Walima” Alhamdulilah we know the meaning of Walima, but I have one question about Walima, but before I ask you a question late me inform you about our system.

All villagers of my area did lunch after Nikha on occasion of marriage ceremony. Because our relatives and friend came from other village and they given importance for nikha that’s why we arrange lunch after nikha. If we arrange Walima on next day nobody can came for Walima that’s why we count that lunch as a Walima. Is this Ture!

Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Nikah is a scared act which brings two people together in a lawful manner.  Shariah desires nikah to be announced so people are aware of the nikah.  One method of informing people of the nikah and also to share the happiness brought by the union of the husband and wife is walima.  Nabi (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) did walima for his marriages and encouraged others to do walima as well.

 

The ideal manner to do walima is after the consummation.  However, it is not necessary for the husband and wife to have consummation to do a walima. If the couple had spent some time after the marriage in seclusion, the laws of consummation will apply.  Nevertheless, if a person arranges meals after the marriage and made intention for walima, it will be permissible.  He will not have to give another walima meal.

أنس بن مالك – رضى الله عنه – أنه كان ابن عشر سنين مقدم رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – المدينة ، فكان أمهاتى يواظبننى على خدمة النبى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – فخدمته عشر سنين ، وتوفى النبى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – وأنا ابن عشرين سنة ، فكنت أعلم الناس بشأن الحجاب حين أنزل ، وكان أول ما أنزل فى مبتنى رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – بزينب ابنة جحش ، أصبح النبى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – بها عروسا ، فدعا القوم فأصابوا من الطعام ، ثم خرجوا وبقى رهط منهم عند الن(رواه البخارى)…قال الشيخ ظفر احمد العثمانى: (عن انس) إلخ: قال المؤلف فى ((فتح البارى)): عن ابن السبكى عن أبيه والمنقول من فعل النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم أنها بعد الدخول كأنه يشير إلى قصة زينب بنت جحش. وقد ترجم عليه البهيقى وقت الوليمة (إعلاء السنن)
