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!
