Walima…..The Feast, Celebration and More
Every Muslim wedding can be divided into three parts- The Engagement, Nikah and the Walima. Now in the real sense of the word, Walima can refer to a celebration or party following major event in one’s life which could range from house warming, start of a new business or even birth of a new born. It basically is a congregation and assembly of people for celebrating an event or occasion. However, it is now mostly associated with post wedding celebration. A usually mentions Walima as a part of wedding Celebration.Muslim Wedding Invitations
So what really is the importance of Walima? Walima can be equated with a wedding reception and just like reception it also takes place a day after the wedding. It is known for its grandeur in scale and lavish banquet that is laid out for the guests. Scholars differ in their opinion on the importance of Walima as such but mostly they all agree that it showcases the happy couple post-wedding. This occasion also presents an opportunity for all relatives to meet the bride. Some families get special Invitation Cards printed just for Walima especially if the nikah is intended to be an intimate ceremony with close relatives only.Walima Card
A is incomplete without mentioning the date of Walima. It is also the most grand and opulent part of the muslim wedding. In olden days, a Walima would sometimes be spread over two days. There is an interesting observation in words of Messenger of Allah that a Walima spilling over to third day is a “Show off”! However, in today’s busy times and hectic lifestyle, Walima is usually a day’s affair at most.Muslim Wedding Card
