Its important. I would appreciate replies from people who are students of the quran and sunnah.The query is regarding Dower (mehr).
And give the women (on marriage) their dower as a free gift; but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, Takeit and enjoy it with right good cheer. verse #4, chapter #4)
As its stated in the quran, that the women should be given the dower when they are married.
But if a woman wishes
she can exempt her man, not to gift her, out of her own free will (either part of it or whole).
Have i understood this wrong?
The reason why i am askin this is, becoz almost all the lectures that i am listening to related to marriage, say dower is compulsory. Yes, i do agree with that. But if a sister, with her own choice, doesnot want the dower, even though its written in the marriage contract. Will that be ok islamically?
Jazakumullah khair everyone.
