Q. Can one marry in Ramadan?

can we marry in ramadan?

can we marry in Ramadan?

A. (#DrZakirNaik): As far as marrying in the month of Ramadan is concerned there is no text in the Quran or Sahih Hadith which I know where it is forbidden to marry in the month of Ramadan. A person can marry in any month of the year. So in Ramadan since he has to abstain apart from food and drink he has to abstain from sexual intercourse so it depends upon him so when he marries in the month of Ramadan the lady he is marrying is his new wife so will he be able to supress his feelings during the day time from beginning of dawn till sunset. That will he be able to abstain that is a test! So if he can abstain from sexual intercourse then he can marry but it is advisable that he delays his marriage after the month of Ramadan and he spends time in ‘dhikir’ and remembrance of Allah subhanwatala, but per say marrying in the month of Ramadan is not haraam.

    • Brother Pavan, It is not a matter of Muslim boy or muslim girl. It is a matter of belief which is foundation of the divine message sent by Almighty to mankind. As marriage is the most intimate relationship so the person must be of the right belief otherwise there is a chance that person may leave the correct path. So it is must that a believer (Muslim) must marry a believer (Muslim). The set of belief required are following
      There are Six Articles of Islamic Bilieves
      1. Belief in Allah, the one and only one worthy of all worship (Oneness of the Worship), creator, sustainer etc and all powerful for everything (Oneness of the Lordship) with all his good name and attributes. (Tawhid)
      2. Belief in His angels (Malāika)
      3. Belief in His Divine Books sent on Prophets from time to time. (Kutub)
      4. Belief in His Messengers, which were sent to Mankind from time to time. (Rusul)
      5. Belief in the Day of Judgment and in the Resurrection (life after death). (Yawm al-qiyāmah)

      6. Belief in Destiny (Fate) (Qadar).
