Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,
Welcome to "Halal Weddings Articles", a new section on the site dedicated to educating people about marriage and other related topics in Islam. We hope that it will be a valuable resource for those who are looking to get married Islamically or anyone else simply researching the customs of islamic weddings. Perhaps you are not a muslim but are attending a muslim wedding and have questions, we hope this section can speak to you as well.
We hope that you'll be able to find your answers here. Some people might come to this site with a deep understanding of the religion and some might be more on the casual muslim side of things - we don't pass any judgement. As long as you're coming to seek knowledge, we hope you can find something of value here.
We are also planning to have guest posts from scholars and Islamic leaders regarding Islam and marriage. We work closely with many Imams and Islamic scholars and from time to time ("inshallah"/God Willing) they can contribute a post. Our posts will vary from long in-depth articles on a variety of topics to short quick posts regarding a very specific topic.
If you are here to learn and have a moment to contribute to the discussion, we encourage you to get involved. Please comment, share, ask questions and engage with our posts. We are also here to learn from you and address the issues and questions that concern the community at large.
A little bit of a disclaimer - Please don't think of our posts as the final word on Islamic marriage. Read many sources online and offline, talk to scholars and family to find what you're looking for. While we aim to be a good starting point and hope to steer you in the right direction, we are not a replacement for the knowledge you can find through scholars, family and other traditional ways of gathering Islamic knowledge.
Blessings be upon you and your marriage and Jazak Allahu Khairun.
