Mahr, protects a women. Islam has given a Man the right to give Divorce, but then Protected the Women with Mahr. If we begin to emphasize on this Mahr rather than Dowry, a lot of Men who Betrays their Wives, or try and Cheat them, would not even end up Marrying them in the first place if Mahr is talked about and talked about Strongly.
This is my request to my Brothers reading this, do not take Mahr lightly. Do not give her the Minimum when you are spending Lakhs of Rupees in your Wedding. If you are Capable of Spending Lacks of Rupees, fix a Mahr that relates with that amount. Aapko apni haisiyat ke hisaab se karna hai, ye nahi ki zyaada se zyaada hi karna hai, magar aap khud sochein, ki jis Shaadi mein Lakhon Rupees kharch kar re hain aap aur Mahr sirf kuch hazaar Rupees. Aisa na karein, ye aapka farz hai aur isee poore dil se ada karne ki koshish karein. Aur Dowry jo ki Islam mein hai hi nahi, usee lene se mana karein ya usse bachein.
Rasool Allah SAW has not even spent a single dime in any of his Daughters Marriage. I would request you all to read this and follow the Sunnah properly. It will make your Bond Stronger, In shaa Allah.
