Performed the Marriage Contract (nikah) But Not Yet Living Together: Can We Still Talk to Each Other?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadha Sulma Badrudduja

Question: I just had my nikah done and my husband lives in canada whereas i live in pakistan. We talk daily and there is a year till we start living together. Should there be any restrictions while we talk? He wants to talk about everything we’ll do or wont after marriage … What do i do?

Answer: Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah,

May Allah Most High bless your marriage!

According to the shari`ah there are no restrictions on your interactions because you and your husband are legally married. It is good to have regular contact since you are now married in order to begin establishing your relationship.

And Allah Most High knows best.
