It is the month of Muharram and we were getting a lot of questions about Marriage in Muharram, asking whether it is allowed or not.
You can have your marriage in Muharram. Nor Allah and neither Prophet Muhammad PBUH has been mentioned in either in Hadiths or Quran. Or we do not find anything that prohibits marrying during this month.
But it is considered as not good (ethically) as in this month Battle of Karbala took place which ended up in the martyrdom of the Family of Prophet Muhammad PBUH on the Day of Ashura.
It is reported by Ibn Abbas and in other various Hadiths that Prophet Muhammad PBUH knew about this day, that the day of 10th Muharram would come that will end in the martyrdom of Hussain Ibn Ali (RA).
The incident of Karbala is considered one of the saddest incidents in the history of Islam. The youngest one to die in Karbala was the six-month-old son of Hussain Ibn Ali (RA).
Now keep it in that way, if someone in your family dies, will you get married on the same date as their death anniversary? Obviously no! and why is that? because you get sad that it was the day when your family member left the world.
Now imagine, this month, the family of Prophet Muhammad PBUH was brutally martyred in the desert of Karbala, who we love more than our parents, siblings, or any family member. To respect that, we must think about it at least once.
You can marry in Safar, even in Muharram as well. But for the sake of Muharram events, it is advised to move your events to Safar or any other Islamic month.
