LHC orders amending Haq Mehar column in Nikahnama

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Saturday asked the federal and provincial governments to amend the Haq Mehar column in the Nikahnamas. The court has directed the governments to add separate columns for cash, moveable and immoveable properties in the Nikahnama register. According to Islamic law, Haq Mehar is a compulsory payment paid by the husband to his wife-to-be in the form of money, jewellery, household goods, furniture, or any other type of property upon accepting her hand in marriage.

    Very good direction by the LHC Lahore to amend the Nikah Namah.It would simplify and make clear the Haq Mahar into three columns namely cash column, moveable asset column and unmovable property column.
