Wait to marry after parents death?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah has commanded in the Holy Quran that the mourning period for a woman if her husband dies is four months and ten days. Other than this one relationship, the mourning period of anyone who dies is a maximum of three days.


There is absolutely nothing in the guidance of the Quran and Sunnah that says that one must wait for a period of one year for marriage after the death of a family member. This is a popular belief and custom in the Indo-Pak region, and has nothing to do with Islam and its guidance. It is a burden of false belief and customs which some people have laid on themselves.


Islam allows you to marry three days after the death of a person, if you so wish. Thus, there is absolutely no virtue or reward nor restriction for waiting a year after the death of your mother or anyone else. Please go ahead and marry on whatever date pleases and suits you. May Allah bless your marriage and give you happiness and success in this world and in the hereafter. Our best wishes to you.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.



Your Brother in Islam,
