Question

Many girls have tried to be the first to visit the bride [after the husband consummated the marriage with her] with the intention of getting married herself after her, and indeed they got married before the end of the year.

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger. We ask Allaah to exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.

 

This is nothing but a superstition as there is no evidence proving it, and it is nothing but illusions. The fact that some girls tried this with the intention of getting married and got married after the bride whom they saw, is not evidence that this concept is correct. Indeed many girls tried this and they did not succeed to marry, so this is evidence that the girls that married after visiting the bride was just a coincidence or as a way of affliction and test, and the like. 

Allaah Knows best.
