Ruling on the bride sitting on a dais

Ruling on the bride sitting on a dais
My question is about the dais on which the bride is placed, which is a kind of platform or stage which is on a higher level than the people who are present, so that the bride may be easily seen by all the people present. Is this a kind of arrogance, knowing that some of the friends of the bride sit with her? Please advise us, may Allaah reward you with good.

Praise be to Allaah.


The dais on which the bride sits is something that has been
well known from ancient times and is mentioned in several classical texts. 

There is
nothing wrong with the bride sitting on a dais, subject to the condition
that it be screened from the gaze of non-mahram men. This is not regarded as
a kind of arrogance, rather the aim, as you stated, is for everyone to be
able to see her. 

Here we should point out the evils that happen in some
societies on such occasions, where the husband sits with his wife on this
dais when she is wearing all her finery, in front of both men and women, or
the husband comes in and sits with his wife on the dais when there are women
present who are not his mahrams, wearing all their adornments. 

The scholars of the Standing Committee said:  

For the husband to
appear on the dais in front of women who are not his mahrams and who are
present at the wedding party, where he can see them and they can see him,
and they are wearing all their adornments and he is wearing all his finery,
is not permissible, rather it is an evil action which must be denounced. 

Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah,

And Allaah knows best.
