Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible to print invitation card for marriage.if yes, what is Islamic form.
as invitees,relatives or family members names are obligatory?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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.
There is absolutely no restriction in Islam if one wants to print invitation cards for ones marriage or any other legal purpose. There is also no harm if one writes the names of invitees, family members, etc.
Since the printing of invitation cards is not a prescribed duty in Islam, there is no question of doing anything obligatory with it. If one wishes to invite people through invitation cards, he may do so; and if one wishes to invite people verbally, he may do so. There is no particular Islamic form which one has to comply with when printing an invitation card; but one should stay within the boundaries of Al-Islam and not print any animated photos, pictures, obscenity, terms of shirk, etc. on the cards.
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,
