  The Fiqh Of Walima
The Arabic word Walima (marriage banquet) is derived from the root word Walam, which literally means to gather and assemble.
He provided meat and bread on the occasion of his marriage with Zaynab bint Jahsh (Allah be pleased with her), Hays (a type of sweat-dish cooked with dates, cheese and butter) on the occasion of his marriage with Safiyya (Allah be pleased with her) and barley on another occasion.
It is better to accept it if it is a Walima invitation, otherwise (on other occasions) one has a choice to accept it, and to accept it would be better, because it creates joy and happiness in the heart of a Muslim.

 State gives initial OK to Pigeon Cove condos
The Massachusetts Housing Finance Agency recently determined Charles Walima's Halibut Point Village proposal, an age-restricted condominium complex with 23 units on Granite Street, was eligible for a Chapter 40B comprehensive permit hearing by the Board of Appeals.
Morrill said Walima was in "flagrant disregard" of site plan review bylaws and a cease-and-desist order issued by the town after he dumped 33,000 square feet of gravel on his property without a permit, 3,000 square feet more than he could without receiving approval.
At that meeting, Judith Egan Campbell, of 218 Granite St., warned of possible difficulties for drivers entering and exiting her driveway and that of the condos due to the lack of visibility on the road.

We were looking to try someplace new and remembered that Walima had recently opend its doors.
The decor is pretty basic, with paper-covered tables on two levels in a slightly awkward space, an open kitchen, and lots of windows.
I dined at Walima last night - it is Moroccan and at the corner of Forty Deuce and 31st Ave (not 44th Street as posted in the review above) and had a wonderful meal.

 Walima - Chai Khaana   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
In pashto the walima is called wama which literally means seventh and not very long ago that was the day that the girls family was invited to see that their daughter was settling in to her new home.
well basically walima is a celebration of the boys side and if i'm correct also announcing that the couple are 'married'.
This event is part of the wedding which doesn't really gets prolonged to 7 days, besides it's for letting people know about the marriage and to feed the poor, rather than parents of the girl actually seeing how the daughter is doing.

 Mehraab
But, when I attend an occasion where the bride or groom is a childhood acquaintance, I am forced to pull back on the reins of my habitually impulsive judgment.
When I saw him perched on a Mughal style sofa up on the platform of the hotel ballroom with his beautiful wife, I felt, for the first time, the calm understanding of how blocks of time are interconnected.
This Walima was also the eventual symbol of what the parents of our generation wanted to see before they died—their satisfaction being a stamped mark of approval on a package brimming with happiness.

 Scotsman.com Living - Taste of morocco is no belly flop
What the menu doesn’t mention is that Walima is also the name given to a Muslim wedding reception, thrown to celebrate the consummation of a marriage.
As we wait, the Moroccan dining experience is enhanced further by the arrival of Walima’s famed bellydancer who gyrates and wiggles her snake-hips, much to the delight of the "mature" hen party opposite, and it’s only a matter of time before one of them joins in.
She’s right, and as we leave the party goes into overdrive - two more of the hens are giving it laldy as they try to perfect the subtle hand moves of the real belly dancer.

 Planning a Walima (An Islamic Wedding) - Associated Content
Planning a walima (an Islamic wedding ceremony and reception) should be a wonderful and precious experience, not a frantic mess.
Getting married Islamically is a very simple and personal process between a man and a woman, however, adding your own special touch and sharing the moment with friends and family can make your moment even more special.
· Discuss with the bride and groom what kinds of food will be served during the walima and what type of caterer to book.
