How to Choose the Day to Get Married?

Shafi'i Fiqh

Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad


If you don’t mind, please tell me which date is suitable for nikah this month for me.


It is permissible for you to choose any date for a nikah this month, but because of the general blessings that are abundant on Friday, one could take advantage and hold one’s nikah on a Friday.

Is it Sunnah to get Married on Friday

Because Ramadan begins in about three weeks, I recommend that you don’t marry in Ramadan, but rather before or after because it might pose some difficulties while fasting. However, it is permissible to marry during Ramadan.
