    Assalamu Alaykom

    What is the going rate of mahr for muslimaat women living in the west?
    ALLAH AL-ATHEEM created everything. Therefore ALLAH AL-ATHEEM created the earth and everything in the earth and created all of the heavens and everything in all of these heavens and created all of the hells and everything in all of these hells and created all of the universes and everything in all of these universes and created everything in between them.

    5-10k in the past it was higher I think, where I'm from anyway.

    Other families have lower amount like 3k.

    It varies from culture to culture, and families.

    'Whatever it be wherein ye differ, the decision thereof is with Allah: such is Allah my Lord: In Him I trust, and to Him I turn.' The Holy Qu'ran Al Shura (Consultation)

    So, which of the favours of your lord will you deny? ~ Surah Ar Rahman

        Every woman is different, it depends on her circumstances, her deen and your expenses.

        If shes high-maintenance, stuck up or from a greedy family maybe 20K+
        Medium-maintenance, has a shopping addiction or may have some debt that she'd like help with maybe 5-10k
        Strong on the deen, loves your character, desperate to marry, love marriage or maybe its her 2nd marriage then possibly 1-3K

        ^Just from what I've heard, this doesn't apply to all women obviously. But very few are going to accept only a couple of hundred or less.

                Only one thing to add..
                It very much depends on how much the Br. getting married has.
                If he is ineligible to pay Zakat, then even £500 might be enough.
                ..depends on the bride and her family.

                One can also promise to give a greater sum when they have it. (in writing)

                    It doesn't mean she is stuck up or greedy.

                    I requested an amount that people think is high because I had that option, it was negotiable and acceptable.

                    ​​​​​​​It is better to ask the man what he is able to offer first.

                    I think we should avoid feeling resentment towards those who request a reasonable amount the man is able to pay.

                    ​​​​​​​If someone can't afford it then they are free to say so and offer something that is within their means.

                      Much of what you say could apply but also it might just be off the mark.

                      A man knows his finances so it makes sense for him to put forward what he can afford and what he thinks is reasonable. The woman can then accept or reject this. I don't see much point in having the woman leading in this respect. Yes she can say what she wants but what criteria is she using to come up with her figure, it's just plucked out of the air. She does not know what he can afford so it's sensible for her to be silent and let him come up with a fair offer.

                        Yes my son. Yes.
                        You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

                        You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.
