Intimacy before walimah

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it compulsory to have sex on wedding night with your wife to make walima halaal the next day?


A: Walimah is halaal always. It is never haraam. It is better that there is intimacy before the walimah.

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