Khatam and mehndi function before a wedding


1. I would like to know if having a khatam (before a wedding) with lunch and tea, inviting families and friends is allowed in Islam?

2. And also a "mehndi function"


1. This is a baseless practice.

2. As above.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
