Living together without walimah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: My brother had nikah in a situation where his mother in-law was suffering from cancer and passed away one week before marriage so he had no walima done. Now after Ramdhaan my mother got seriously ill and had to opt for lumbar spine. She has to be in bed for at least three months. We are three siblings, two sisters and brother. Both sisters also married. Is it allowed for my brother to bring his wife without walima to look after my mother?


A: Yes. If she is willing to live together.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
