It is Not Permissible for One Who Has Married a Virgin or a Nor-Virgin to be Late for Congregational Prayer


Question :
A newly-married man remains with his virgin bride for a week and with a non-virgin for three days, and he does not go out to pray in congregational. Is it in the Sunnah not even to go out to prayer?

Answer :
If he marries a virgin, he should stay with her for seven days, then part; and if she is a non-virgin, he should stay with her for three days. If she wishes him to remain for seven, he should do so, and then spend the same time with the others. The essence of this is in what was narrated by Abu Qilabah, on the authority of Anas, may Allah be pleased with him: "It is part of the Sunnah that if a man marries a virgin when he already has a non-virgin wife, he should stay with her for seven days and then part. And if he marries a non-virgin, he should stay with her for three days, then part." Abu Qilabah added: "And if I wished, I would say that that, Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, attributed it to the Prophet Prophet Peace Be Upon Him." Narrated by Al0Bukhari and Muslim and the wording is that of Al-Bukhari.
Umm Salamah, may Allah be pleased with her, narrated that when the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him married her, he stayed with her for three days, and he said:
There is no lack of respect for you from your family, so if you wish, I will remain with you for seven days. And if I did so, I would do the same with the rest of my wives.
"There is no lack of respect for you from your family, so if you wish, I will remain with you for seven days. And if I did so, I would do the same with the rest of my wives."
Muslim no. 1460.
It is not permissible for a person who marries a virgin or a non-virgin to be late for the congregational prayer in the mosque, with the excuse that he is newly-married. Because there is no evidence for this, and there is nothing in the two (aforementioned) Hadiths which necessitates that.
