Answer:

 


Walima before intercourse

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.

 

Your Question: What is Waleema?

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.395 Narrated by Anas

The Prophet (saws) seeing a yellow mark (of perfume) on the clothes of 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf, said, "What about you?" 'Abdur-Rahman replied, "I have married a woman with a Mahr of gold equal to a date-stone." The Prophet (saws) said, "May Allah bestow His Blessing on you (in your marriage). Give a wedding banquet, (Walima) even with one sheep."

 

The Way or Sunnah of the Prophet (saws) was that after the Nikaah, he (saws) urged the believers to celebrate the joyous occasion of marriage with a marriage feast or Walima. The main wisdom behind holding the wedding feast or walima is to announce ones marriage to the family, friends and society one lives in.

 

Your Question: Should Waleema feast given after having sexual intercourse or the feast can e given before performing the act ?
There is no specific time limit ordained in the Sunnah for one to offer ones walima after ones marriage; but wisdom dictates that one should offer this Sunnah and hold ones wedding banquet as soon as possible or is easy for him to do so.

 

The fulfillment of conjugal relations in ones marriage has absolutely no bearing on the timing of the walima; it is absolutely permissible and acceptable in Islam to offer the walima or marriage banquet immediately after ones Nikaah or as soon as is easy and convenient for them.

 

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

 

Your Brother in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
