Making nikaah on the day of Aashura

Q: What is the significance of performing nikaah on the day of Aashura? Is there any special virtue in this?


A: There is no special significance for performing nikaah on the day of Aashura. The Hadith teaches us that when a suitable match is found, the nikaah should be performed immediately and should not be delayed.

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