- My question is that here in India during marriage or engagement the guests give money in the hand or in a envelope to the bride or groom and their parents, grand parents and it is thought bad about some one who does not give anything.
- Also before marriage when rishta (the relation ) is finalised then the relatives of both parties give some money to the bride and groom saying that this has to be given to see one another for the first time.
A: These are baseless customs.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
