Writing soon to be husband’s name on hand

Fatwaa ID: 1948

‏السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Respected mufti saheb
Is it permissible for a girl to write the name of her soon to be husband before nikkah with the mehdi.?
‏جزاك الله خير وأحسن الجزاء

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We understand that an engagement or formal agreement between the two families has taken place and the nikaah will take place within a few days. The mehendi/henna is being done for the nikaah/wedding. Accordingly, it will be permissible to write the soon to be husband’s name on one’s hands with henna.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
