1.1 Background of the Study

In the name of Allah the most gracious, most merciful, praise be to

Allah, the Lord of all creatures. The one that sent His messengers with

guidance and truth, may He bless the Noble Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)

his companions  and all those   who follow  their   path    to  the Day of

Resurrection. Amin.

The Almighty Allah (SWA) in the glorious Qur’an enjoins the doing

of good and forbids the doing of bad.

Allah says:

“There should be a group in you who invites others to all that is good and commands them to do good deeds and forbids them against evil deeds. And they shall, indeed, be successful (on the Day of Judgment)”1.

In another verse Allah says:

Therefore give admonition in case the
admonition profits (the bearers).2

This definition of literature review will guide the researcher to carryout her literature review.

Some of the books and works that relate to the area of this study directly or indirectly are reviewed in the following pages. Minhajul Muslim of Abubakar Jabir al-Jazairi talks about preaching. He mentioned its impact and how it is supposed to be delivered.

However, Shaikhul Islam, Abu-Abbas, Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya (Rahimahullah Ta’ala) in the book titled Minhajus Sunnah pinpointed the remedy taken by preachers towards the importance of delivering it to non Muslims and the Muslims both men and women in all aspects. Shaikh Muhammad Matawalay Sha’arani talks about preaching in his book Minhajus Salihen, Shaikh Sani Anwar Jamee also talk about preaching in the book ‘Silahul Mu’umin’.

The above mentioned scholars and books are generally called the men of wisdom because, they pinpointed all the aspects of preaching. But in relating their work to this research, other scholars and books that touch the side of Walima are of more emphasis.

Shayikh (Mufti) Muhammad Ibn Adam writes:

“The Arabic word walima (marriage banquet) is derived from the root word walima, which literally means to gather, assemble. The Arabs used it for meal or feast where people were invited and gathered. Later the term become exclusive for the wedding banquet. The Arabs used different term for the various feasts they enjoyed. For example; al-azar on the occasion of child’s circumcision, al-khurs for marriage not ending in divorce, al-wakira on building a new house, al-naqiah when a traveler returns home, alaqiqah on the seventh day after child birth, al-mu’duba for a general walima without any specific reason, etc3.

Moreover, the marriage feast (Walima) is a Sunnah (tradition) of our beloved messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace). It is an outward expression of gratitude and pleasure and a great means of publicizing the marriage, which has been greatly encouraged. Anas Ibn Malik (R.A) narrates that the messenger of Allah (S.A.W) saw a yellow mark on Abdur Rahman Ibn Awf (R.A) clothe and said:

What is this? He replied: “I have married a woman with the dowry being gold to the weight of date-stone”. The messenger of Allah (S.W.A) say: may Allah bless you (in your marriage), perform a walima even if it is only with a goat”.4

A book titled “Fiqh Sunnah” published by Dr. Abdul Azim Al-Badawee talks about the opinion towards Walima5. Bulugul Marami is the

book of marriage by Al-hafiz Bin Hajar Al-asqalani also emphasizes the tradition of the Prophet regarding the marriage banquet as one of the second major things carried out6. Sheikh Muhammad Salih Munjid in the book of Ala Utubatul Zawaj; he mention how prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) perform Walima7.

There is a seminar presentation during Walima made by Dr. Nasir Abubakar Kigo in Birnin Kebbi, a famous preacher and Ameer (NACOMYO Kebbi State Chapter) titled “Yake Diya ta” (Oh you my daughter) where he draws the attention of newly married brides on what to do during their marriage life such as obedience to the husband and upbringing of the children8.
