Bridal showers

For Ibrath:                                      BRIDAL SHOWER...

Among the barakah destroyers of recent times are the “bridal shower” parties that take place. “Bridal shower” parties were known to be a get-together of friends of the bride-to-be.

Each invited person was expected to bring along a gift. This was bad enough as it is actually a sophisticated manner of begging.

However, it has recently emerged that these parties have in many instances become much worse. Music is played. Dancers and singers are hired. Obscene pictures are plastered all around. Other vulgarities take place. This is extremely shocking.

May Allah Ta’ala save us! If the run-up to the Nikah is such a “shower” as above, one cannot expect “barakah” to pour down on the marriage. It is a recipe to destroy the sacred bond. It is the formula to lay a bed of thorns — Allah forbid!

Let us shower our Nikahs with barakah. Showers of barakah come from adopting the Sunnah in our Nikahs and by refraining from things that invite the wrath of Allah Ta’ala.
