Dealing in Riba to Afford Marriage

Answered as per Maliki Fiqh by BinBayyah.net

What is the ruling on someone who takes a usurious loan to be able to afford the expenses of marriage? He has absolutely no other means of collecting the expenses for the wedding. What is the ruling of filming the wedding party on a recording camera?

Try to collect the wedding expenses without taking a usurious loan, unless you fear you might slip into Zina. Only in this case will it be permissible to take a usurious loan to pay the minimum amount of Mahr. This is according to what Al-Zurqani said in his commentary on Mukhtasar Khalil. This opinion is also supported by Ibn Bashir and rejected by Al-Banani, and Allah knows best!
