Do you see this first time, every day news out so many people are victim of dowry from the all communities. Do not indicate one community. Please try yourself to avoid dowy system. One of the Shekmale jamath already started, recently created one Board in Puttur to exploring Non-dowry sytem. So push them to improve all over in South Canara.

I know some boys they dont like dowry if they not taken then they cannot marry same things in girls side if not provided they also face same. Why we cant try change our procedures i am not telling to change mahar it should be, but as capacity of boy. But other procedure as u know all. Dont thing i am supporting dowry i hate it and i am decided to marry without dowry insha allaha

Don’t just blame the husband of the girl or the family. I, you, and each and every one of our community is responsible for this. Do you want to know why.

Yes, because we are the one kept ourselves quite, doing nothing to eradicate the issue even after we know that Allah has given us the clear instructions that what is right and this "dowry system" is wrong.

وَآتُواْ النَّسَاء صَدُقَاتِهِنَّ نِحْلَةً فَإِن طِبْنَ لَكُمْ عَن شَيْءٍ مِّنْهُ نَفْسًا فَكُلُوهُ هَنِيئًا مَّرِيئًا (4:4)
The interpretation of the meaning. “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, Take it and enjoy it with right good cheer.” Quran Ch4:V4

But we are responsible, because we know it and we are not working for this purpose.

And the matter of fact our white uniformed mullas are supporting the dowry system by not preventing people from it. The extend is so much even they support by saying it is not haraam to take dowry. They say that they did not get any proof to say it is Haraam. Subhanallah. Allah is pure from these allegations of these white dressed Mullas.

Look at the aayah given above. And also For example, al-Bukhaari narrated from Sahl ibn Sa’d that a woman came to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said: O Messenger of Allah, I offer myself to you (in marriage). She stood there for a long time, then a man said: O Messenger of Allah, marry her to me if you have no need of her. He said: “Do you have anything that you could give to her as a dowry?” He said: “I have nothing but this izaar of mine.” He said: “Look for something, even if it is a ring of iron.” So he looked but he could not find anything. The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Do you know anything of the Quran?” He said: “Yes, Surah such and such, and Surah such and such.” He said: “I give her to you in marriage in return for what you know of the Quran.” Narrated by al-Bukhari, 4741; Muslim, 1325.

Ibn Hajar (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
This indicates that the mahr is essential in marriage, because he said: “Do you have anything that you could give to her as a dowry?” The scholars are unanimously agreed that it is not permissible for anyone to engage in intimacy (with a woman) without naming the mahr.

It also indicates that it is better to name the mahr. If a marriage contract is done without naming the mahr, the marriage is valid and the bride is entitled to a mahr like that of other women like her, when the marriage is consummated. End quote. Fath al-Baari, 9/211.

I say Don’t Attend any marriage of dowry, let not the white dressed people go to these kind of un-Islamic marriage to beg some nakka-picchi cash. even if it is in your house. Even if it be our own relative or even if it is your closest friend who does marry in a dhoom dhaam level. Don’t help people who ask help for their daughter’s marriage. If you really want to help, is help them by talking to the boy and his family. Convince the boy with Quran and Sunnah.

The Quran, the Sunnah and the consensus of the scholars indicate that the dowry is to be given by the man to the woman, not vice versa. This is what is in accordance with sound human nature. How can a man be qawwaam (in charge of) the woman when she is the one who has paid the mahr to him? Allaah has made spending of wealth by the husband one of the reasons why men are in charge of women, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Men are the [qawwaam (in charge of)] protectors and maintainers of women, because Allaah has made one of them to excel the other, and because they spend (to support them) from their means” [al-Nisa’ 4:34]

If you attend, that means you join hands with those who do go against the Law of Allah. Against the words of Rasoolallah(SA)

As for the solution, it is essential that the scholars, daa’iyahs, me you and everybody in our society and media available with us strive our utmost to put an end to this problem and then deal with it and change the custom to that which is in accordance with sharee’ah, which is in accordance with the nature which Allah has created in man.

But still, I and you will go behind these white uniformed mullas, to ask them give fatwa, and they will convey the message to mass, if we expect so; then let’s forget it. This will not happen till the Day of Judgment. If you see some videos of these mullahs from the costal belt of India, specially Kerala and Mangalore, subhanallah you will wish to catch their neck and drag them to the desert. If you need the links I can send it to you upon request.

And most of them follow not except assumption. Indeed, assumption avails not against the truth at all. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what they do. Ch 10 V36

And we really love that our sisters should be not abandoned by their husband, they should not hang themselves or they should not fire them selves; then let us bring the awareness of Allah and His Rasool (SA) and the teachings of Islam. Bring the awareness of Quran and Sunnah.

Allah Knows Best.

Sincerely sorry for the sad untimely demise of our sister Fathimath Zuhra (23), resident of Montugoli, Konaje. Prayers with almighty Allah to provide her magfirath and marhoomath. Insha Allah.

"Naked Truth" and the Hieght of Stupidity. This is the limit of Dowry.

Non-islamic practice; by so called islamists in our community..... May Allah show them the right path....

With Profound sorrow.

Whatever justice will come out, will never give her life again. What kind of Muslims are these who practice dowry? where as there is no dowry in Islam. There is only "Mahr" (in kannada, we do not have "Varadakshine" we only have "Vadhudakhshine") Wake up Muslims, do something to caste out the DOWRY system.
