If the dowry is not stopped, this spark will surely become a flame.
To tell the truth, dowry is a very pleasant word which can be interestingly commented on with interest- dowry means to give someone only what he needs- this word was used for burial and burial. – And the fact of which is that the educated class, but also the common people, remember the Sunnah of the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, which can be kissed with the lips and planted with the hearts as a Sunnah. It is an undeniable fact that in today’s modern era, if there is any custom that has made the lives of the poor faithful and middle class people miserable in our society, it is without a doubt dowry – because generally in this era, dowry is not. It is accepted as Sunnah and it is not accepted as Sunnah.
The original meaning of dowry was that the girl was given some necessities on her wedding day – but in today’s advanced age, the opposite meaning of dowry is that the boy or the boy’s father forcefully collects valuable goods from the girl. – The limit is that the need of the bride is considered subordinate to the need of the dowry. Parents of daughter-in-law are able to fulfill their demands or not!
In today’s advanced age, people have made dowry as a means of acquiring wealth – as if marriage is done only to gain possession of wealth – a place to think from the heart and think deeply. Is- especially! Those greedy for dowry who do not refrain from asking for dowry, let them think about the horrible, painful and destructive darkness of the grave on the day of Mohshar, on which day the dowry was taken by force, which is a source of humiliation and humiliation for them. And sin will cause great-
Our above statement does not mean that dowry should not be taken because taking and giving dowry is the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which is a good and blessed and paying Sunnah. And dowry should not be collected by forcing them, because a dowry that is collected by force is not a Sunnah, it is a curse, that dowry is not a mercy, it is a burden, it is not a good thing, it is a bad thing – yes! If the man of the girl is giving his girl out of his own pleasure, then he should accept her and not abuse her, there is a reward and a Sunnah method in that – because the Holy Prophet himself, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said that Hazrat Fatimah al-Zahra, may God bless him and grant him peace. As a dowry, she was given a mushkiza, a mace filled with palm bark, and other things – which makes it clear that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was happy to give some necessities to his daughter on the day of her marriage. It is the Sunnah of the Prophet and peace be upon him – but keeping this action of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in the level of fard or wajib, or considering it as a fixed sunnah that I am paying the sunnah of the Prophet, and forcibly accepting dowry is completely against the Sunnah and the limits of the Shariah. Rather, this Sunnah of the Holy Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is a non-binding Sunnah, the payment of which is not a reward and there is no sin in not paying it, because if taking dowry was necessary and the Islamic Shari’ah made it mandatory, the Prophet himself would have done it. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did not marry without a dowry, while it is proven from important traditions that the Prophet Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) did not take dowry from any of his wives, Hayat (may Allah be pleased with him) – we certainly claim that dowry is a Sunnah, but it does not mean that girls should be tormented and suffer. The mountains should be broken, they should be forced to lend their hands and take loans – because oppressing someone is a most disliked and abominable act in the sight of Allah, the Most High – and Allah, the Most High, never has mercy on the oppressor.
Undoubtedly, those who ask for dowry and do great injustice to their spouses and their parents will never deserve the mercy of Allah, the Exalted. They have become ruined and humiliated – and woke up in the cave of so much humiliation that they are not worthy to show their faces in front of anyone – it is the result of forced dowry that women today serve and obey their husbands. Reluctant and unconscious of honoring them-
At this point, it would be appropriate to submit that the culprits in the matter of dowry are not only the boys, but also the girls themselves, and these are the rich people who give millions of items as dowry due to fame and exposure. – This exhibition makes a poor and middle-class man think that if he does not give a lot of things in his daughter’s marriage, he will be cut off in the society and community – and to think that Style inspires people to perform feats of formal display, resulting in some without status being forced to borrow and lend money to provide expensive dowries—and ironically, what the wedding ceremony does. Both the rich and the poor alike make a regular display of dowry – and show it to people uninvited, so that they are praised – and people believe in its majesty – which is just their stupidity and stupidity – because the Holy Prophet Al-Aqdas, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: The less money spent on a marriage, the more good and blessed it will be. In the light of this commandment of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), those gentlemen who perform unnecessary and useless actions for their glory, majesty and supremacy should think for themselves and make a decision with a cool heart and mind. That they are becoming deserving of reward and reward or rebuke and eagle by doing all this display and wasteful spending and they are making their daughter’s marriage a cause of good and blessing or of destruction and destruction –
Dear readers! There is no doubt in this that the same way of thinking about taking and giving dowry has robbed countless homes of peace and tranquility – and countless women of Islam, whom the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) called with mercy, are in the dowry mill. Grinding people have made them a burden to the world – and they look forward to spring for their youth on their parents’ doorsteps – but the irony of circumstances has destined them to wither, despair and autumn – God alone. please-
Due to this wrong and anti-Sunnah environment of dowry, creation has entered into the social and economic system in our country today – due to which some other social problems are being created that if this wrong transaction of dowry is not stopped. If it happens, surely this spark will become a flame – the country’s intellectuals, politicians, but also every individual needs consideration to remove this disease – today there is a need to eradicate the deadly evils of dowry from the society. Those who take forced dowry should be overthrown and boycotted – the relationship of mercy and charity should be severed from their homes – and do not participate in any marriage where dowry is demanded and exhibited. And in such marriages, imams of mosques and scholars should never go to perform the marriage ceremony. The day is not far when this destructive practice of dowry will be removed from our Islamic society and the dark stigma of the wrong way of thinking about dowry transactions will be removed from our bright foreheads. Look away and let the dowry monstrosity’s ever-growing chain rustle and crumble and die-
May Allah Almighty protect our society from the destruction of dowry and grant us all the ability to walk on the straight path.
