    I didn't realise you meant the mahar. It is from the sunnah, and leaving it off is a sin. It is not a cultural practice, though some cultures take the mahar to various extremes, such as high prices, demands for jewelery, lively-stock etc.

    Here are some fataawaa on the issue of the dowry (mahar). There are a number of good books that also deal with the subject.

    The dowry is the right of the wife

    The negative and harmful consequences of exaggerating concerning the dowry

    What is the minimum amount of mahr? What is the modern equivalent of the mahr of the Mothers of the Believers?

    Hope it helps,

    Was-salaam
