Answer:

 

Wearing garland in marriage

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

The exchanging or wearing of garlands by the bride and the groom during a marriage is definitely not a part of Islamic culture, but rather is specific to and is considered an obligatory rite of the pagan ‘hindu’ culture….and it is not lawful for one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to imitate or copy anything that is specific to the pagans.

 

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4020  Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar

The Prophet (saws) said: ‘He who copies any people is one of them.’

 

Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 4649        Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As

Allah's Messenger (saws) said, "He does not belong to us who imitates other people.’

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
