In the Islamic tradition, a Muslim engagement ceremony called Mangni.
Mangni marks the official engagement ceremony between the bride and groom and their respective families. Close friends and relatives from both the families gather on a pre-determined day to witness the bride and groom exchange rings. Each family showers the other with gifts of sweets, fruits, dry fruits, clothes, etc. This ceremony officially seals the intention of marriage between the two families and the bride and the groom are considered betrothed to each other in the eyes of the society. Manjha is very similar to the haldi ceremony followed by Hindus. A few days before the wedding the bride is dressed in yellow finery.
Islam is one of the most practiced and preached religions across the world. Muslim Wedding strongly pertain to rituals such as, Salatul Ishtikara, Imam Zamin, Mangni, Manjha, which can be well regarded as the Islamic haldi, followed by Mehndi, Sanchaq, Baraat, Welcome, NIkah or the wedding, Arshi-Mushraf, Rukhsat, Walimah and the Chauthi, in which the couple visits the Bride’s place, four day later the commencement of their Nikah.
Mangni ceremony : Mangani is one of the chief highlights of an Indian wedding, before the actual marriage ceremony, is the ritual of Sagai or Kurmai. This ceremony marks the official 'asking' of the bride's hand by the bridegroom's family.
The Engagement of an Indian Muslim Couple Junaid and Asma
There is an increased acceptance of engagement with rings and gifts. However, even traditional households have a ceremony called roka where gifts are exchanged between families. It used to be a mellow affair earlier with just the close family involved. It is taking the form of a feast nowadays with entire parties going to each other’s places and engage in engagement (pun, a bad one, intended).
Generally, the date for marriage is also decided during this ceremony. A calendar with good and bad dates marked in it is often employed at this point. I have never understood the religious validity of this calendar. While Islam does have a concept of good days — Friday being the most important one — I am yet to understand the idea behind a bad day for marriage. Nevertheless, this small booklet is pulled out for setting the dates in our family.
