Nikaah while the girl is experiencing haidh

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Normally a girl knows about her periods and if a girl tells her mom that she is not going to have her periods and the mom sets the date for the wedding but on the day of the wedding, she suddenly has her periods, the question is will her nikah will be valid or not because the girl is having her periods?


A: Yes. The nikaah will be valid.

( وينعقد ) ملتبسا ( بإيجاب ) من أحدهما ( وقبول ) من الآخر ( وضعا للمضي ) لأن الماضي أدل على التحقيق ( كزوجت ) نفسي أو بنتي أو موكلتي منك ( و ) يقول الآخر ( تزوجت و ) ينعقد أيضا ( بما ) أي بلفظين ( وضع أحدهما له ) للمضي ( والآخر للاستقبال ) أو للحال فالأول الأمر ( كزوجني ) أو زوجيني نفسك أو كوني امرأتي فإنه ليس بإيجاب بل هو توكيل ضمني (الدر المختار 3/ 9)
