Bride’s family feeding after the nikaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: On the day of the wedding (Nikah), the bride’s father will offer food for all the guests who visited the wedding at that time. The guests will be from both sides and that might be in large number i.e. 1000.

My question is, will the food offered by the bride’s father to the grooms side haraam?


A: The sunnat of the waleemah is that the groom should host the waleemah.

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