    Title: Regarding Mahr

    Question: I want to do hajj this year 2012 though I am a married person since 3 years; I have a question about mahr, before going to hajj we have to return all debts/loans etc. Is it possible to return mahr in between 2-3 months after performing hajj due to some financial conditions before I cannot pay mahr. Please help me.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1524/1524/M=1433) If your wife does not demand for immediate mahr and you have arrangements to pay it after you are back from Hajj then there is no harm in paying it within two or three months after you are back from hajj. (هو) .... (فرض) ... (على مسلم) .... (ذي زاد وراحلة) ..... (فضلا عما لا بد منه) كما مر في الزكاة .... (و) فضلا عن (نفقة عياله) ممن تلزمه نفقته لتقدم حق العبد الخ (الدر المختار مع شامى 3/454-462، كتاب الحج)
