Do not arrange the food with interest money as rich and poor everyone will eat it. Yes, if you give it to some poor person and he arranges the food with this money with his consent then it shall be allowed for all to eat. The father or brother of the girl may also be poor to whom you may give the amount of interest and then he can feed on his behalf. However, the arrangement of food from girl side in which a large number of relatives and related people are invited is not correct. Moreover, if there is no capacity then indulging in such acts is more heinous. Thus you should arrange simply and avoid show. It is allowable to give the girl gift and necessary articles from interest money but not as much amount which turns her sahib-e-nisab or if she has already become sahib-e-nisab with the gift of people then too it is not correct to give her.(Fatwa: 870/705/D=9/1438)
