As Salam Alaikum,

Is it permissible to get married on the day after Eid ul adha or in the month of Muharram?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

In Islam, there is no prohibition in getting married in any specific month or date.

The month of Muharram has significance and special merit in the Shariah. Muharram is one of the four sacred months of Islam.

Accordingly, it is permissible to get married in the month of Muharram or the day after Eid-Ul-Adha. [1]
