BY Anupriya | 24 Feb, 2021 | 39233 views | 3 min read

After witnessing gazillions of weddings get postponed in the year gone by, it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see 2021 all packed with auspicious wedding dates. Especially now when the vaccine has rolled out & the cases have dramatically declined, couples wouldn’t wait for another lockdown to ruin their plans. And so shouldn’t we! Hence, being the ultimate wedding guide, we decided to lay down the 2021 Islamic calendar for all the Muslim brides and grooms looking for auspicious dates to get married on.

Muslim weddings, as we have all seen, are a mix-platter of opulence, flamboyance and sophistication. Whether it’s their fun Mayon rituals, the regally stunning nikkah, or the show-stopping Walimah, each ceremony has something unique to offer. And to make sure we get an unending dose of it this year as well, the Hijri calendar for 2021 weddings had to be on our hit list!

*Note: As stated by Astrocamp, Personal  events like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries can also be planned accordingly with the help of the Islamic Calendar 2021.

While there are no set dates for islamic weddings and a couple is allowed get married at all times, there are some days on which marriage is not recommended based on ahadith & other historical & cultural reasons. One of which is Muharram (10th Aug 2021-7 Sept 2021 )! It’s a widespread belief that it is makrooh to get married in the month of Muharram since those days are commemorated by the muslims as days of mourning. Other than that, it is also considered inauspicious to get married during ramadan (which starts from 12 April 2021 and ends on 12 May 2021).However, a lot of muslim couples are putting aside the age-old inhibitions & reinstating their faith in the belief that all days belong to the Allah.

Well, that was that! We hope this curation helps you finalise on your lucky date & embark on your happily ever after!
