Q: My question is about ilaa. If a couple is married and rukhsati is not done yet and is due after 5 months and the husband says to wife that he will consummate after rukhsati which is after five months. But the husband does not take any oath just say that he will not do consummation untill rukhsati. Is it ilaa ? Husband and wife have met once after nikah but are still virgin.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
