Q: A cousin of mine in a highly deendar environment has married a shia and our family decided not to attend the marriage of our cousin. However, a few of our deendar relative and elders called us and scolded us for doing Qata’ Rahmi. Q.1 What is the fatwa on attending a marriage/nikah being arranged by Shia? Is it permissible or impermissible? Q.2 Is it Qata’ Rahmi on our part to boycott the marriage?
A: Avoid such marriages totally.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
