Q: A couple has done nikah and Rukhsati will be a few months later. The parents want to have a function in a hall and feed the guests to let their daughter go with her husband. After alot of insisting they are not doing that and now they are letting the husband take the daughter directly from the house without any function. The girl’s side would like to feed their guests. The groom is totally against this. Can the parents feed their guests with another intention and not for the rukhsati?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
