    A Shaykh with good sense of humour was once asked to give a short lecture about marriage at a wedding, so he said:

    Well, don't you think people get bored of listening to a lecture about marriage every single wedding party they go to?

    How about if we talk about divorce for a change?

    That's nice , I've never been to a walima where anyone gives a talk.
    Deeds are your money on the day of judgement , make sure you collect plenty now.

    That's strange...

    in the UK, nearly every Walima comes with a lecture, and nearly all of these lectures are about marriage.

    They serve the food , you say mabrook to the bride then thats it . I also dont go to many weddings because of all the music.

    We went to a nikah once, and the talk went on for a good hour! My husband considered asking the brother if he is waiting to be paid in order to stop talking.

    Short and sweet is the key.

    Try not to have it on the standard boring walimah talks. Will post some suggestions later insha'Allah.

    My cousin married a tahriri brother in Pakistan. At the walima, his uncle gave a talk about "the need for khilafat."

    wa 'alaikum as salaam

    usually you'll find many non practicing muslims attend weddings so its important to try and give them dawah

    something about the purpose of our creation/our goal in life show them getting married is an act of Ibaadah and a means for us to attain jannah

    something along those lines maybe

    That's an easy link to make...marriage --> society --> khilafa

    Having said that a tahriri could turn a lesson on how to bake a cake into a khilafa talk.

    "If we had a khilafa we wouldn't need to check all our food products with the latest "halal 2007 booklet"!"
