Podcast: How Intimate Can a Couple be Post-Nikkah, but Pre-Marriage? | Yaser Birjas

Published

Question:

I just had my nikkah done with my husband and we are having our rukhsati done soon (in the next few months). The reason for [the] delay is just mainly to prepare for the wedding and  [to] accommodate family members’ schedule [for] the wedding. After the nikkah is it permissible to do all the acts that are permissible between a husband and wife even if the rukhsati hasn’t been done?

Sincerely,
Getting married in my 20s

    I don’t get it. Just don’t get it! What is the point of it? It’s like a halal dating contract (with a clause) that says if you happen to have sex during this time because you can’t help yourself (which is totes natural), it will not be considered a sin. But preferable to not have sex until the ruksati/marriage party because the old folk will frown upon it. But technically you can have sex as it’s halal under this type of contract. The idea is that it’s better than haraam dating. Omg, This is like BoJo telling us to stay at home but go to work but also stay at home.
