I want to know what Islam (Shariat) says about Mehr? what is its significance and spirit ?and why it is paid to woman(wife) What type of Mehr are there. Please explain Muaajal and Indultalib Mehr
Mehr is a token of responsibility that the groom gives to the bride. This symbolizes the husband’s role as the provider for all the essential needs of the household. The Mehr can be agreed upon as to the amount and whether it is financial or in some other form. The concept of Muaajal (i.e. deferment) is not necessarily Islamic but acceptable if the parties agree as to what is supposed to be given and at what point of time.
I hope this helps.
God knows best.
