Question : Can a wife forgive her husband from Mahr?

Ques : Some days ago, someone asked me that her husband did not give her the money of mohorana. their marriage held in 1988. Now her husband does not have the ability to pay it. Will it be okay if she forgive her husband for money? or he must pay it?

Ans : Assalamu Alaikum.

If a wife forgives her husband from paying her mahr by her own, not under any pressure, then her husband will be forgiven. He’ll not have to pay it anymore. But if not, he’ll have to pay it.

Hope that answers your question.
