    actually in regards to the mahr
    it doesnt necessarily mean a pious women should ask for a really low mahr
    or a blessed marriage should have a low mahr

    if that was the case then all the prophets صلي الله عليه وسلام wives would have really low mahr but they didnt

    i think there are different interpretations to this hadith
    i recall one aalim saying in regards to this hadith and mahr


    its when for example someone gives mahr and the girl asks for less than what was gonna be given

You can even go camping or glamping more appropriately cuz you want it bit fancy, but you save on flight and hotel cost. Its the time spent together that matters more than the flight & hotel. Not everything in life has to be OTT fancy
    But I want to feel special.

    salaams to all

    if ur referring to the way in which the kuffaar do it, then not important at all...
    but for the newly married couple to initially have extra privacy before normal life resumes is advisable.
    about a week is sufficient.


    and Allah ta'ala knows best
    jazakallah

Will be going to our 5th honeymoon this year, inshallah :) As others mentioned, it doesn't have to be expensive & it doesn't have to be the day after wedding. I would suggest pushing it back a little bit so you can take care of post wedding action items & adjust to new life. But don't push it too far back as it is suppose to be a stress relief from all the wedding/new life related activity. Its a break away from all the task new couple have to do, whether its adjusting to new family or setting up a new home or writing Thank You notes. Even if you feel you have the most chilled out family and most relaxing wedding & nothing to do but Netflixandchill at home, it is still nice to have a break to do something new.

    It is scientifically proven that our first experience of anything gets embedded in our memory much stronger than our day to day activity. When we think back to our friends and family, we don't remember the daily activity but we remember those one time/first time experience. Honeymoon is like that, couples experience their "first" in a new place & that experience forms stronger bond in their memory. Enough of those & you eventually become family. Hence having first baby is such a strong bonding experience too for parents. But before baby, Honeymooning/babymooning..and all the other types of mooning are great way of building memories
    Can't you just call it a holiday?

    Good points mentioned slightly changed my view on honeymoons feeling like it is beneficial for newly weds. I kinda felt like it was just consumerism before
