I’LAN اعلان
Publishing the notice of marriage by sending messengers to the houses of friends. A custom which is founded upon the express injunction of the Prophet, as reported by ‘Ayishah: “Give notice of marriages, perform them in mosques, and beat drums for them.” (Mishkat, book xiii. ch. iv. pt. 2.)
