Nikah In Ramadhan


As-Salam-u-Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullah…

My question is:
Is it permissable to get a nikah done in the month of Ramadhan?

Point to consider here is that the man and woman would not touch each other during the month and will be living seperatly and concentrate more on making the most of the blessed month by fasting, praying, doing dhikr etc etc.
The reason for the nikah in Ramadhan is purely for it is a blessed month and the marriage to be blessed. Is there any other month or time of year which is recommended ?
I apologise for any offence that I may have caused.
Jazak Allah


wa `alaykum salam,

Yes, you may make Nikah in Ramadan or at any time of the year as you prefer, like Rajab or Rabi`al-Awwal etc. Don’t worry, daytime touching between spouses in Ramadan does not invalidate the fast, however it is recommended to refrain from doing so. Importantly, any intimate relations are allowed only between after Iftar at night and Imsak just before Fajr, during which, you would probably be more busy with worship.

Shawwal is a good month to get married as your relationship with your spouse would not be bounded by the restrictions in Ramadan. That it comes after a month of complete obedience, repentance, prayer and worship followed by a joyful celebration of Eid al-Fitr and spiritual re-birth, it brings about abundant blessings of happiness that shall decorate your path into matrimony.

Wa’Allahu a`lam
