    Title: Can I touch my wife before paying her mahr?

    Question: Can I touch my wife before paying the mahr to her on the marriage day? Can I touch or hold her hand before our marriage? (our marriage is already fixed)

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 347/347/SD=05/1437)

    It is allowable to touch the wife after nikah before paying the mahr, but on the day of marriage before nikah also she is stranger; and it is not lawful to have contact with her and touch her hand.
