Hyderabad Urdu papers launch campaign for simple weddings: Indian Express

Wednesday, 12 December 2012
Comments(50)
New Delhi, December 12:

At a time when the big Indian wedding season is on in full swing, editors of three major Urdu papers of Hyderabad have launched a campaign to move towards simpler and more austere marriage celebrations, with an “appeal” to their readers.

The three broadsheets, Siasat, Munsif and Rahnuma-e-Deccan, are known to wield considerable influence.

The appeal has been made in “consultation with the Ulema” and “in the light of the Quran and tradition”, say editors Zahid Ali Khan (Siasat), Khan Latif Mohammed Khan (Munsif) and Syed Viqaruddin Qadri (Rahnuma-e-Deccan).

The campaign suggests holding the marriage ceremony in mosques, avoiding dowry, limiting festivities to family and those coming from outside town, avoiding lavish dinner parties post nikaah, and sticking to the time set for the ceremonies. The ‘Daawat-e-Walima’ — the reception hosted by the boy’s side — should be organised keeping in view “the condition of the poor and deprived, and done simply”, says the campaign.

Earlier, a news report on two sisters in Baghpat in western Uttar Pradesh being ferried to their weddings in a helicopter and elephant respectively, at a huge cost, had been widely commented upon in the papers.

“We are focusing on persuading all sides to host just a tea party after the nikaah and to resist pressure to spend enormously on the ceremony. We have got very good response. We hope to put up posters and distribute pamphlets in masjids too very soon,” said Zaheeruddin Ali Khan, the managing editor of Siasat.

Fireworks, “band-baaja”, videography and expensive stage and decorations should be avoided, adds the campaign, directed mainly towards the youth.

Bawa bole abhi tak to bus se jata. gadi koi bhi nahi chalaya unhain. To ladki wale bole - bachche ko bolo motor cycle aur car chalana seekhliyo bolo aur license bhi nikal lio bolo. Kiyon ke ladki wali motor cycle aur car de rain kate. Agar nai sekhay - ya license nai nikale to Shadi cancel.

Ab ladke mein motor cycle aur car chalane ki bhi qabilyat hona kate?

Enjoy a marriage

This is really a ridiculous campaign.
Previously people used to have multiple marriages.
Even the prophet(pbuh) had multiple wives.
However,these days it is only one wife that people are having.
Therefore people should have a decent marriage within ones limits.
Subsequently these leaders may say that even festivala like Eid etc should not be celebrated.
Next they will say that going to Haj is expensive and should be discouraged.
There is no end to "Kanjoosi"
Next they will say that mutton is expensive and we should eat only vegetables.
Grow up,earn more and spend more.

when you marry do you know

when you marry do you know that you may not have to marry again or you plan ahead

Will it work ?

The three urdu newspapers, siasat,munsif,rehnuma-e-deccan,collective may publish 30,000 copies,(approx), with siasat taking the lead, if we calculate 3 readership to each paper sold, it will be approx 90,000, among these 90,000, the young readers aged between 18 and 30 are very less,who just glance headlines or read english news papers, this age group are busy in building their careers, they are least bothered in worldly affairs,people aged between 30 and 40, read papers occasionally,the main readership group is aged between 40 and 65, who read newspapers seriously, each readers spends atleast one hour on reading each paper, people those who are in these group do not hold any decision making powers, it is their wifes who have taken control of their lifes, and this group , just to be peaceful, agree to whatever their womenfolk decides, and what do i say about muslims womenfolk, they spend to the last rupee on marriage, without thinking of tomorrow, in many cases they take loans and perform marriage,to keep the invitees happy they go to any extent,lavish dinners has been so deep rooted in the muslim traditions, that it is very hard to change their mentality,marriages are remembered with the lavish dishes they cook and serve,this initiative is good , but will not produce any result.

Ek ho jao sab Muslim leaders

EK HO JAO SAB MUSLIM LEADERS PLS. FOR SAKE OF ALLAH THEN ALLAH WILL REWARD YOU IF YOU FORGIVE YOUR BROTHERS THEN ALLAH WILL FORGIVE YOU. Maaf karne wale ka darja bohat bada hai,AllahuAkber. Chalo eek kaam karenge Sab Muslim leaders Public gardern ke Masjid me Aajao Juma Padne, Namaz ke baad Gale melenge phir mere taraf se sab ko biryani kelaonga. Bolo AllahuAkber. Mere bhaio aab karne ka waqt aaya. sab melke har jaga lek do ke Ek hona hai, Tu saahid ye loog Muslim public ke baat maanle.

i am 30 and still cannot arrange my marriage ( not becuz of money ) but too much demand from my parents from me!

reply to sohail.

Move on sohail, 30 years is past marriageable age,if parents demands are high from your marriage,talk to them seriously, involve other family members who can change your parents mind, if still they are adamant,move on from your family for a few days, marry a girl of your like, live independently, after few months they will come to there sense,this is the only medicine for their cure.

One of the much needed move to address one of most harming issue of the society!!
May Allah guide us and EASE the path for us...
JazakAllah hu khairran kaseera Zahid bhaai!!

Hyderabadi Fatwa

Shaaadi 1 hi baaar hoti bhai...Manje / Shanchak / Jumaagi / Chowhti / etc etc nai kare to bade buzurg naraaaz hojaate. Buzurgo k aaakhri aaarzzuu ku kaun puura karinge... beeecharu ku phir maukha milta ki nai ki 3-4 different chicken dishes ka kashmeeeri pulaaau ka, rabdi ka, dry fruits ka mittha, qurbani ka mitttha, chicken rolls, lukhmi kabab, marag, much more. hamare buzurg apne potro / nawaaso ki shaadi me nai kheenche to phir kiski shaaadi me jaake ye sab items kheenchenge.

Good move

All the marriages should first register with wafk Board following things
No of members attending the marriage (should be restricted)
Menu of the Dinner
They should not use band-bajja ect….
No Dowry (compulsory)
Then only wafk board should give marriage certificate

WITH SO MUCH DEMANDS FROM

WITH SO MUCH DEMANDS FROM GROOM'S FAMILY, SO MUCH COMPETITION BETWEEN RELATIVES, SO MUCH SHOWOFF.... NO CAMPAIGN CAN SUCCEED. ANYWAY NICE TRY TRIO.

....AND WHO SUFFERS THE MOST WITH THIS EXTRAVAGANZA? YES OF COURSE.... THE BRIDE'S PARENTS.

may Allah SWT give hidayath

may Allah SWT give hidayath to all men and women for a good cause to implement. its a sunnah from our prophet Muhammad(SAWS). May Allah SWT accept our good deeds.

Lets wait and watch

A very good initiative,but it is not going to produce any result, just wait and watch, we, muslims, have a tendency to give advice to others, but we fail to follow it,

Islamic way of Marriage

Its good to here that some celebrities are trying to spread the information to perform simple marriage as islam permits us. i hope they are doing on islamic grounds not on political grounds. it will be more pratical if these celebrities implement this at there families and relatives and give the news in paper with pictures, then you will get the result. we want to here and see something practical not on peiece of papers. ( bolne our sunne ke liye teek hai aap karo to maane ).

Writer have the power----Then what about etimaad

"Assalamualaikum wa rehmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu.... 1)Salaam karne se ALLAH ki taraf se SALAAMTI milti hei... 2] Salaam karne se ALLAH ki taraf se REHMATEIN naazil hoti hein.... 3)Salaam karne se ALLAH ki taraf se BARKATEIN naazil hoti hein... 4)Salaam karne se APAS mei MOHABBAT paida hoti hei... Jb kisi se milo toh Pehle khud Salaam karo.. [Baat karne se pehle Salaam kiya karo]"

"Writers have the power to change the thinking, choosing and deciding habits of readers. They are very influential. The biggest revolutions were caused by papers..Communism was spread by Karl Marx and so was Nazism by Hitler, The Indian independence movement was sped up by writers. and journalists. Gandhi and Nehru wrote books.......But the most Influential and Revolutionary book is the Holy Qur'an. Shouldn't we allow it to influence us?"

simplicity in marriage

good move for a noble cause. after a long respectable persons took decisions for beeterment of muslim umma who are waisting money in lavish dinner of walima and marriage. hopefully there will be positive response.

ILLEGAL SEX

Apart from dowry, we must also change our perception towards 2nd marriages. It must not be looked upon as a taboo. Parents of girls should recognise and see if the guy is able to do justice and is religious, they should not hesitate to marry their daughters to an already married guy.

Instead of muslim girls marrying Hindu and Christian guys or indulging in illegal sex, we must encourage 2nd marriages to eligible, pious and able muslim guys. This is the need of the hour to save our daughters and sisters from doing haraam things. Please bear in mind that sex is also a type of food for the body and soul. A pious girl also can be tempted to go on a wrong path if she does not find a suitable person to marry. Better to be a 2nd wife than having small-time sexual relationships with non-muslims.

MashAllah - Allah hum sab ko nek taufiq de Ameen

One more Most important step can be taken in this regard is by Constructing a FUNCTION HALL , which can save a lot of money for both LADKI & LADKE WAALE, which will charge very reasonable fee for them.
MASHALLAH - A GOOD STEP

A humble Request to All Parents

Please help these initiative and let us get marry in simple way by following the sunnah of Muhammed(SAW) for the success of deen and dunya and encourage us to spend our money on our spouses, family and charity.

Save your child from 'Haraam' by doing easy Nikah, 'Halaal'.

Assalaamalaikum Warahmatullah

Dowry/Simple wedding

While I respect the campaign for simple marriage, I strongly condemn the views of avoiding marriages where dowry was involved. There are limitations which have to be compromised @ certain scenarios. I'll quote an example here: One of my friends daughters who is unfortunately a diabetic patient since childhood was getting married. The girls father arranged a laundry shop for the bridegroom in order to take care of his ailing daughter. What's wrong in it. There were some idiotic campaigners of anti dowry attacked the marriage hall & tried to disrupt the wedding. Luckily, police arrived & those so-called activists ran away.

Valimah immediately after the Nikah is permissible- Deoband

If we conduct valima given by the bridegroom [Dulha} immediately after the nikah on the same day, then the expenditure and burden on the bride's family is decreased significantly. It is fully permissible valima. Here are the fatawa in urdu from Darul uloom Deoband and Darul uloom Shah waliullah
http://theislamicreality.blogspot.com/2012/12/valimah-immediately-after-...
And remember, demanding directly or indirectly from the bride's family for dinner on Nikah or to share in valima expenses is Haram and that food is Haram to eat as it not a duty of the girl's father to feed the guests, it is the boy's duty to arrange the dinner.

Valima on day of Nikah

The groom [Dulha] should do Valima on day of Nikah itself so as to avoid double dinner parties and save time and money. This is a perfectly valid valima as there are clear fatawa from deoband and others on this topic-see for details and fatwa text: http://theislamicreality.blogspot.com/2012/12/valimah-immediately-after-...

All the marriages should first register with wafk Board following things

I agree with this

I agree with this enforcement but at this point we have to make sure that wafk people doesn't involve themself in dowary and take advantage of all powers...

GOOD TASK

Appricted for the task taken by all.

Assalamalaikum

Siasat, Munsif and Rahnuma..Jazakallah khair for all your efforts for our community. Now people started recognizing your efforts and commenting very positively. I am really happy to see that now we have got some sense to understand what is true and what is false...Jazakallah

reply

it is a waste of time and nothing but publicity stunt

First start implementing

First start implementing these rules from your home and relatives

Zahid should be the face of Muslims

With Muslims facing a negative image globally,we need a progressive thinker like Zahid to lead the community.
His views on preventing dropouts from schools,female education & empowerment and his secular outlook towards the community will lend fresh blood to Muslims.
High time Muslims dumped their fundamental leaders and looked to Zahid to show the path.

Apeal to all "Ladke Wale"

Apeal to all "Ladke Wale": You can only change the situation. Dont force "Ladki Walon ko" to give Jahez, dont ask them to do useless Rasams and feed your relatives/friends and mutually agree to provide simple dinners on Wedding/Walima days with one or two dishes. only Relatives and close friends to be invited "not Everybody You know". Only "Ladke Wale" can stop this mad race of making weddings exhorbitant.

Salaam Habeeb Urf, Hayaat

Salaam Habeeb Urf, Hayaat Hussein Sahab... Looking Awesome as usual..... Great Job By Siasat, Munsif & Rehmana e Deccan..... Allah S.A.W watching every moment of our life's and hope in future we all together Share Responsibilities towords UMMAH....... Ameeeeeeeeeeeeeen

Thanks for the Initiation

I am very much impress with such initiative taken in our society, and thankful to all the people who are part of it. I would say every Muslim should follow to make marriages such a simple & should not make to feel a burden. It should be a celebration where the two different families cultures come to gather and express their happiness with their relatives and friends. Insha allaha when I am getting married I will also try to make it simple and should not be a cost effective for anyone.
thanks & Regards

CAMPAIGN SIMPLE WEDDINGS

ASSALAAMALAIKUM DEAR ALL,

THIS IS REALLY A GREAT CAUSE & A GOOD CAMPAIGN TO START I APPRECIATE THIS AND REQUEST ALL THE HUMAN BEINGS IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY RELIGION TO STOP SPENDING LOT OF MONEY IN MARRIAGES WHICH CAUSING PROBLEMS TO THOSE WHO CANNOT AFFORD TO SPEND MONEY & DUE TO WHICH THEIR SISTERS/DAUGHTERS & NOT GETTING MARRIAGES.

SPECIALLY TO ALL MUSLIM BROTHERS I REQUEST THAT DONT ATTEND ANY MARRIAGE IN WHICH MORE MONEY & LUXURIOUS BUDGETS ARE ALLOCATED. ONLY THIS WILL IN SHA ALLAH ERADICATE HUGE SUMS SPENTS ON MARRIAGES. MAY ALLAH GUIDE ALL THE HUMAN BEINGS TO STOP SPENDING PLENTY OF AMOUNT ON MARRIAGES. AAMEEN

BEST REGARDS

ALLAH HAFIZ

Great News....!

I heartily congratulate the all people who are trying to stop all non-sense expenditures in weddings for their success, I wish for their good work and better success in future too... similarly I thanks to the team working on it and the people for supporting and obeying sunnah.

A great and a long awaited

A great and a long awaited MOVE and compaign.

During PROPHET SALLAHUALAIHI WA SALLAM'S TIME NIKAH WAS EASY ZINA WAS DIFFFICULT AS THERE WERE ALWAYS INSTANT MARRAIGES. MARRAIGES WERE MADE EASY.

BROTHERS THIS MOVE WILL BRING A DRASTIC CHANGE IN OUR COMMUNITY AND IMPROVE OUR SOCIAL & ECONOMICAL ASPECTS.

SPENDING MONEY LAVISHLY FOR JUST ONE DAY TO SHOW PPLE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE IN ISLAAM.

SO MANY MARRIAGES ARE DELAYED JUST BECAUSE OF THESE LAVISH FUNCTIONS AND CEREMONIES.

PPLE ARE FORCED TO GET LOANS BEYOND THEIR CAPACITIES FOR SUCH FUNCTIONS.

TODAY THE GROOM PERFORMS WALIMA DINNER OF MORE THAN 2 LAKHS AND TOMORROW AGAIN EITHER ON BICYCLE OR BIKE.

SO SAVE MONEY BROTHERS.

FEAR ALLAH BROTHERS

SAVING IS AS GOOD AS EARNING

PLEASE SUPPORT THIS COMPAIGN.

SO MANY GIRLS ABOVE 30YEARS ARE STILL UNMARRIED.EVEN BOYS TOO.

MAKE SMALL GATHERINGS NOT MORE THAN 50 PLLE WITH SIMPLE ONE DISH OR AT LEAST FEED 50-100 POOR PPLE INSTEAD OF FEEDING ALL THOSE RICH.

INITIALLY THIS MOVE WILL HAVE LOT OF OBJECTIONS FROM BUSINESS SECTOR AS THEIR BUSINESS WILL BE MOUCH MORE DOWN.

PHOOL WALA
SHAADI KHANA WALA
CATERING WALA
JWELLERS

ALLWILL OPPOSE THIS MOVE.

ALL THE BEST TO ALL OF YOU.

Was looking fwd to it

Mashallah! This is a great initiative... We must also include the religious aspects of haraam acts e.g. music, fireworks, israaf, etc. thru fatwa or articles from the great ulemas of various seminaries. Inshallah, this will thrive... We, the rich and well-to-do people, should take pledge that for every marriage in our family, we will help one daughter of a poor family get married... This will help reduce gunaah among ummah and also alleviate the poorer section. May Allah give taufeeq to all of us and show us the right path. Ameen

SIMPLE AQD NIKAH

ASSALAM TO MY BRO IN ISLAM,

I HAVE GOT MARRIED IN AUG THIS YEAR AND MY NIKAH AND WALIMA WAS MUCH MORE SIMPLE THAN THE MENTION ABOVE. THE NIKAH WAS CONCLUDED IN MASJID AND THE WALIMA WAS ALSO CONCLUDED IN MASJID. OVER ALL COST OF MY WALIMA WAS LESS THAN 40000 INR WHERE MORE THAN 450 MEN AND WOMEN ATTAINED THE FEAST.

SIMPLE FEAST IS VERY EASY I SUGGEST YOU TO LEAVE ALL THE KIND OF TRADITIONAL THING WHICH ARE NOT FROM ISLAM AND YOU CAN HELP OTHER BY THAT MONEY. IN MY WALIMA FEST WE HAD SIMPLE MENU WHICH INCLUDE OF LUQMI, HALEEM AND A SWEET.

ALHUMDULLAH WE ARE WELL SETTLED IN GULF COUNTRIES AND COULD REACH THE EXPECTATION OF THE SOCIETY BY GIVING A LAVISH FEST BUT WE PREFERRED TO GO AGAINST THE EXISTING TRADITIONS OF HYDERABAD AND CONCLUDED OUR FEST.

MAY ALLAH HELP US IN FALLOWING SUNNAH OF MESSENGER S.A.W AND THE SAHABA WHO CONCLUDED WITH SIMPLE FEST NOT LIKE WHAT IS KNOW IN HYD THESE DAYS.

ASSALAM
ABU SULAIMAN
