Q: In the current situation Salatul Janazah, for victims of Covid-19, is held at a hall or a holding facility after the Ghusl is given. Both males and females are present. In such circumstances, will it permissible for the females to join the Salatul Janazah?
Q: I’m getting married soon, and I would like to know what are the prerequisites for a Walimah to take place? Does the Nikah have to be physically consummated? What period of time should there be between the Nikah and the Walimah? Will the Nikah and Walimah be invalid if the marriage isn’t physically consummated?
