Validity of Walimah


Will the Walimah be valid if the couple were unable to be intimate due to the wife experiencing her monthly cycle?


Having intercourse is not a requisite for the validity of the Walimah. Therefore, Walimah that is celebrated the day after (the newlywed couple) spend the night together is valid even though they were unable to be intimate (due to the wife experiencing her menstrual cycle.)

نکاح کے  بعد جب کہ میاں بیوی میں خلوت ہوگئی تو اگلے زور ولیمہ کرنا صحیح ہوگیا  ، ولیمہ کے لئے صحبت ضروری نہیں ہے  –  مستفاد  بذل المجھود ص۳۴۵  ج۶ 

 يجوز ان يولم بعد النكاح او بعد الرخصة او بعد ان يبني بها والثالث هو الاولٰي (بذل المجهود 345 ج4)
