Helping someone in marriage in ayyam e aza/ fatamiyyah

Q:

I have promised someone to donate something and help them with their marriage expenses.. Later I found it has been falling within Ayyam e Fatamiyyah. Now what should I do ? Should I donate money for the sake of help and the promise I made earlier or will it be a sin to support a marriage within ayyam e fatamiyyah ?
Kindly guide me.
Best regards.

A:

Wa Alaykum al-Salam

Thank you for your question.

If the promise was with its special “Siga”, your responsibility is to fulfill it.

And Marriage is a great worship, halal and it holds a lot of merits…

So, if you had promised and it has fallen in “Ayyame Faatimiyah” this act can take place by maintaining the sanctity of the event.

Allah knows best.
