Good deed #481 – Pay mehr – dowry

“And give to the women their Mahr with a good heart; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, take it and enjoy it without fear of any harm.”
(Aayah No. 4, Surah An-Nisa’, Chapter No. 4, Holy Qur’an).

And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (obligatory bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) with a good heart” [al-Nisaa’ 4:4]

Abu Al-Ajfa As-Sulami narrated that Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA) once delivered a sermon in which he said, “Verily, do not make woman’s dowries expensive, for had this been a means of praise in this world, or a means of pleasing Allah, then the first person that would have done so would have been the Prophet (PBUH). But Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) did not give any of his wives more than twelve Uqiyyah as dowry, nor was the dowry for any of his daughters more than that.”
(Hadith No. 5150, Book of An-Nikah, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 7).

Narrated Sahl bin Saad: The Prophet (PBUH) said to a man, “Marry, even with (a Mahr equal to) an iron ring.”
(Hadith No. 5150, Book of An-Nikah, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 7).

It was narrated that Sahl bin Saad said: A woman came to the Prophet (PBUH), and he said, “Who will marry her?” A man said, “I will.” The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Give her something, even if it is an iron ring.” He said, “I do not have one.” He said, “I marry her to you for what you know of Qur’an.”
(Hadith No. 1889, Chapters on Marriage, Sunan Ibn Majah, Vol. 3).
