Walimah is after the consummation of a Nikah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by TheMufti.com

Q. Should a Walimah be done before or after the consummation of a Nikah?


A. Walimah is a Sunnah of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alahi Wasallam.

The Walimahs of Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam were immediately after the consummation of marriage.

However, if one wishes to have a Walima after the Nikah and before the consummation of marriage that too will be valid.
