Hosting Meal in New Residence


Assalaam alaikum varahmatullahi vabarakatahu,

dear brother I want to know about the giving of dawat on the building of new house for own residence and for rental purpose, is there any compulsion? if so what should be the niyah on giving dawat


Alaykum Salaam.

It is just a sunnah.
According to a hadeeth some walimas (hosting of meals and inviting guests) are sunnat (recommended traditions) of the holy Prophet (s.a.w.w) and one of them is when you buy or build a new house.

Wallaahu a’alam
