Question & Answer
What in your opinion are the acts in the marriage that are prohibited (in reference to kashmir)?


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We begin with Allah’s blessed name, we praise him and we glorify him, seek his forgiveness and ask him to guide us. Whoever Allah guides, None can lead astray and whoever he misguides, None can guide. There is no power and no strength except from Allah, The most high, the Most great, the most powerful. We bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers. We pray for peace and blessings on all the noble messengers and in particular on the last of them all “the blessed prophet Mohammad (pbuh)”

In Kashmir, The prohibited acts performed in a marriage are:
  • In Kashmir The mixing of sexes has unfortunately become a prevelant culture. In particular on the night of henna, the men enter into the tent of women, while the women are singing. A groom right in the middle of women flock has his hair cut or other things.
  • The music bands are hired to play haram music and sing haram songs.
  • Spending extravagantly on marriage is a very bad thing happening in kashmir. however due to the efforts of various religious and social organisations the positive change can be seen nowadays.
  • Wearing of revealing clothes.
  • A groom applying hena to his little finger (This is a prevalent practice in Kashmir).
  • The dancing of non-mehram boys and girls together.
There can be other things that I might not have mentioned above, if one is in doubt about any other act, one can consult a scholar or write to us, for the ruling. And Allah alone knows the best.

I ask Allah to make this a sincere effort, seeking his pleasure, and I ask him to grant us refuge in him from the evils within ourselves, and that in our deeds. I ask him to grant us success in achieving whatever pleases him; And May Allah Shower His blessings and mercy upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), his family and his Companions and on all those who follow him until the final hour.
