I have a friend who has just had her nikaah and she wanted to ask if after nikaah is it neccesary for couple to sleep togther for the nikaah to be valid and if they dont will the nikaah be in valid?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
The husband and wife sleeping together is not a condition for the validity of the nikah. If a married couple did not consummate the marriage; the marriage will remain valid.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
