Bismillahi Rahmani Rahim, first I want to thank you for this webspace you provide to clarify doubts or things we can not understand well and are important for us, people who are trying to follow the way of our beloved Prophet.
I have a simple question: Is it possible to perform nikkah/marriage during bride’s menses? The date of the wedding was already decided and preparation is in process. Possibly the bride will be in her menstrual days at this day. Do we need to postpone the wedding?
Thanks for your answer in advance and may Allah bless you for ever.
No reason to postpone the wedding if scheduled to be performed outside a masjid. The menstrual only impedes a woman from formal prayers, entering the prayer room, touching mushaf and performing a Hajj ritual (Tawaf).
