    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 353/331/B=03/1435) (1) If the wife admits of receiving the mahr or there are two witnesses who say that it was paid then it was paid. (2) Two or three persons should sit and solve it. (3) Whatever monthly expenses are fixed by two or three persons keeping in view the current price hike it shall be payable. (4) Only the wife shall be its owner.
