Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu. Brothers and sisters and welcome back to ask Muslim. Today we're talking about the walima. To have a walima or not to have a walima. This is a question that a lot of brothers and sisters they ask because most of the emphasis is on in the cache. But when it comes to the walima, or the celebration of the necaxa, most people's kind of just shove it under the table or it becomes like a secondary issue for them. The first thing that you want to know is the status of the walima. Scholars have differed on this and simply because we don't have an explicit Hadith or narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordering the omet to have

00:00:49--> 00:01:26

our Lima. But what we do have is we have all the companions, including the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself, they all perform a walima. Now what exactly is the purpose of the winninger? The purpose of the walima is an announcement. It's to basically let the world know that you and this person are married, and you guys are a couple. So it erases any problems. If you happen to see each other on the street somewhere or walking to a park somewhere, nobody's going to think negative or think that you know, these two aren't in a bad relationship or whatever. So you want to make sure that that announcement is done. Now that announcement when it's done, this is the purpose of that

00:01:26--> 00:02:07

will Lima, but when it comes to the status or the hokum of this walima scholars, they say that because we don't have an explicit narration to order us to do this. The walima is not in and of itself a wedge or compulsory thing to do. However, scholars don't leave you just like that to make that decision and say, Okay, well, it's not why Jim, let me just do what I want to do. scholar still encourage us to pay attention to the Sunnah, and pay attention to the lifestyle of the prophets, I send them and the companions and notice that none of them left off a walima. This in and of itself shows that the walima is something recommended. And you should put an effort into doing this. I

00:02:07--> 00:02:47

remember a long time reading that some of the LMS also said that a will Lima is also the result of Baraka and blessing in the marriage. As opposed to somebody who doesn't perform olema Allah azza wa jal remove some of that blessing or some of that bottlecap in that marriage. So you really want to make sure that you place an important emphasis on the edema. Now how the walima is done, when it should be done, and who you should invite and all of the implications of all it will leave is a very detailed discussion, what all we want to present to you at least is the importance of the wittiness. So the last point that I want to mention guys is if there's anybody out there who hasn't done a

00:02:47--> 00:03:27

walima yet, even if it's 510 years down the line, you may still want to think about doing a short and small walima small celebration, even if it's in the house, invite some of your families, some of your friends or whatever, have a nice big dinner, you know, you can get the sheep and then you can cook it and feed it to everybody with the intention that this is a walima then in sha Allah, Allah can still reward you and still put blessing and Baraka in your marriage because of that will even it's something to think about if you haven't done it already. Last last point. I know I said I was the last one but I'll just squeeze in one more point. And that is the Lima is something that should

00:03:27--> 00:03:58

be done as early as possible. So any new couples out there who have just recently got married, if you haven't done the walima yet, don't delay it. That is also one of the traditions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tried to do the walima as early as possible, even if you can join the kneecap. walima all in one day, even better allies so he will make this blessing, a blessing time and a blessing feel for all of us that will Lima is a happy time. So I hope you enjoyed was salam wa Alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
