  • Modern Muslim marriage contract

    I just came across this article - How I gave up on the modern Muslim marriage contract - where the author says that a woman who has reached adulthood doesn't need a Wali's permission to marry, and the witnesses can be of any faith/gender.

    This is the contract itself - Muslim Marriage Contract

    What are people's thoughts on this? The contract mentions jahez/dowry which I thought was nothing to do with Islam?

    Asalaamu Alaikum,

    Stopped reading after this -

    meaning women and non-Muslims can be witnesses too.
    IT's also the guardian, sister don't waste time pondering over what misguided people say.

    And dowry is apart of Islam, it only applies when the husband gives something to the wife, like a gift.

      Lol I'm a bro, bro...

      I thought the gift to the bride was Mahr, and dowry was some old cultural thing where the groom's side demand things?

          You are correct, but over time the two words have become interchangeable since most people don't know what the dowry actually is

            Asalaamu Alaikum,

            Apologise ahki. Yeah, i get confused sometimes with the dowry/mahr, but your right, mahr's Islamic, dowry isn't.

              To quote Sheikh Haitham al-Hadad, "This is very close to zina, if it is not zina." The very idea of a 'modern muslim contract' is an act of kufr. The deen was completed by Allah SWT during the time of the prophet (SAW). The very idea of this contract is as if Allah the All-Seeing, is not aware of the changing times. So many things wrong with this contract.
