Q: What is the ruling regarding engagements, ring ceremonies in Islam? Is it permissible to conduct nikah in lawns?
A: There is no basis for this.
Most of these styles have the elements of extravagance, show and ostentation and the Islamic teaching is totally against all this.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
