:salam2:, I hope you're in the best state of health and iman. I have a friend who is Palestinian and she has a question about engagement. There are many Arabs who practice the concept of having "a Fatihah" where they recite the surah before getting engaged. Some scholars that I have come across have stated that this is an innovation while others state it is a good deed/allowed. I'm not sure which of the two it is, so inshAllah I would really appreciate whatever information anyone can give me. JazakAllah Khair.
