and commitment to the marriage which also signifies sense of responsibility and obligation" he said.

Isiaq Zakariyah

The dowry here is not the cultural gift that families collect especially in the southern part here. The dowry is the special gift from the husband to the wife to legalize their relationship. The amount mentioned by the scholar is just the standard which he calculated based on what the prophet advised ie 1 quarter of a Dinar. The scholar didn't bring the verdict but calculated it. And this may be increased or decreased depending on the ladies opinion. Yet, Islam preaches that dowry should be affordable or else, people will go for formication rather than marriage and the result will be that we'll have more illegitimate children than the legitimate children in our society which is spiritually bad.
