Before Qubool Hai….. And The Story Afterwards
A Muslim wedding is a spectacle of lovely ceremonies. It all begins with Istikhara where Groom’s mother visits the Bride’s house. She ties silver or Gold coin wrapped in a silk cloth to the girl’s hand, this ceremony is called Imam Zamin. This ritual s followed by a formal engagement or Mangani where again the groom’s relatives visit the Bride’s house. These days it is common for couples to exchange rings during this function.
The countdown to the wedding begins with Manjha Ceremony in which turmeric paste is applied to the Bride’s body and then amehendi ceremony takes place right before the wedding. On the wedding day, the groom is welcomed by the Bride’s relatives with a glass of Sherbet. As is customary, Men and Women sit separately in a Nikaah ceremony. The Meher which is an essential amount to be given by Groom’s family to the bride’s is decided and conveyed to the gathering. Thereafter the Maulavi takes consent of both Bride and the groom three times which is responded with a “Quboolhai” in agreement. This is when traditionally the bride and Groom would see each other for the first time that too in a reflection on the mirror.
After the Nikaah, the bride sets her foot for her husband’s home; this high on emotions ceremony is called Rukhsat. To welcome the bride, a grand feast is given by the Groom’s parents also called Walima. A Muslim wedding is usually an intimate affair with only very close relatives attending the actual Nikah. It is mostly the Walima where everyone including distant relatives and friends are invited.
