      Perhaps that's where the stigma against "dowry" stems from.

      Dowry back in the days was something a wife paid to the husband.

      That's why men used to seek out the rich ladies from high classes.

      The richer she is the higher the dowry for husband would be
      In european culture (christianity) the dowry was a man paying the father to buy the daughter. There are still groups of christians who practice this.

      But my mother is a feminist and finds it insulting when men offer money to women for any reason, even to pay the household bills; she equates it to prostitution.

        lol, you know what's funny, is the culture whereby the Father of the bride used to pay for the entire wedding. Still goes on in some places, but the financial climate has made them finally see common sense. Islamically however, the Mahr and Walima are of the Sunnah in marriage and the only real Islamic components. The rest are cultural traditions of giving the bride a day before the walima etc.

          Which Culture is that? :scratch:

          as far as I'm aware it is typically split between both parties (bride & bridegroom side) ... at least amongst the asian Muslims ...

              It used to happen in the US.

              In Muslim culture, I think it's typically split, but South Asians sometimes engage in a 'dowry' that is paid to the man. Which is haram

              In south Asian culture, usually I see the woman have her day and paid by her family who invite all their own friends and family, and then a walima where we invite all the male side and only the closest friends/family on the brides side. Of course, many are familiar with this 50/50 type split situation.

                yeah I used to get the same until the issue of rings came up

                I likened the dowry/mahr to an engagement ring ie man has to buy it for the woman to show his intention, can be very expensive a few hundred to thousands , if she breaks off engagement she returns ring if he does he doesn't ask for it

                it helped explain in my situation anyway

                    Re: Mahr fatimi

                    The thing is I like the idea of asking for mahr fatimi but if the groom is well off and I end up having to buy all my own wedding stuff, arrange the nikah etc then I want more money from him afterwards to make up for it.

                    But if someone didn't have much money then of course I wouldn't expect much as long as he then wasn't asking for a lot in terms of reception etc, it works both ways

                        You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.
