After many years Allah has blessed me with the opportunity to get married to a brother in a few months in shaa Allah. My family that is not practicing Islam, and the only condition which they haven’t agreed upon is photography and being able to record the walima for memory. What do you advise me to do, because at this point I’m not able to do anything. I’ve stopped discussing the subject because it angers them and i’m afraid they’re going to say ‘no’ to the suitor.
Shaikh Adel As-Sayyed:
Since you and your future husband believe that photography for memory is forbidden then you should insist on refusing it.
If you think they will reject the suitor for this, then let them know that it is you who the one who refuses as you believe it is haram.
