Answered by Shaykh Abdurragmaan Khan
Question: Assalam alaykum,
I am getting married and I want to buy new things. Can I buy new things for my house during Muharram?
Answer: Wa alaykum al-Salam
It is permissible to purchase household accessories anytime in the year, Muharram or otherwise, prior to marriage or after. There are no restrictions from the Shari’ah in this regard as long as one is not squandering monies or being wasteful.
And Allah knows best
