Question

Asalamuallaikum wa rahmat
Allah,,,,,,Bismillah wa alhamdullilah wa salat
wa salam a rasool Allah,,,,,,,,,,What is the
ruling regarding an "engagement party"
before marrying??? (according to the
understanding of the salaf u salah,,,,,) please
bring daleels from kitab u sunnah (saheeh
hadiths or at least hasan according to the
salafi scholars)

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

The engagement party or celebration is
permissible if it is free from religious
prohibitions, like mixing, women not wearing
Hijab, and music, as we are not aware of any
scholar who forbade it. However, the
engagement party which people organize
today whereby the fiancé meets his fiancée
before conducting the marriage contract
with her, and he puts a necklace or bracelet
on her, then this party is forbidden and it is
not permissible to approve of it, let alone
participating in it. That is because before the
fiancé conducts a marriage contract with his
fiancée, it is not permissible for him to be in
seclusion with her or shake hands with her,
let alone seeing her in her complete beauty
as it is the case in such parties.

As regards after the marriage contract, then
she is his wife and they may organize a
festival in order to announce this marriage;
the Prophet said: " Make the marriage
public. " [Ahmad, At-Tabaraani, Al-Haakim
and Ibn Hibbaan] However, this festival
should be free from any prohibition, like
mixing, songs accompanied with musical
instruments and obscene language, and other
prohibitions. Nonetheless, it is permissible
for women to use the Duff (tambourine) as
the Prophet permitted it in marriage.

Allah Knows best.
