What is a Dowry?
O- of the first order
W- who can’t stand on their own feet
R- rely on their wife’s riches
Y- yet shameless.
Unfortunately, this dowry set-up is considered as the traditional value of our society. Thousands of girls remain vestal due to the ideology of dowry. Only a daughter’s father can value the signification of money of the which he aligned the long list of materials on the name of this dowry.
While research I endowed various stories of suicides and murders happened due to this dowry’s theory. Many girls killed by their in-laws because they haven’t been able to please their lavishness for countless desirable things.
In September 2013, four Pakistani sisters pledged suicide because their father was incapable to spruce up dowries for them to get married. Even though we have anti-dowry laws 1967, 1978 and 1988 but despite these laws, this dowry culture is still practicing and no one could imagine a marriage without this.
Many people complain that the police refuse to register FIR against dowry obsession. This culture isn’t concerned with laws anymore because there is a need to stop this through our own mindset.
If really someone quotes the example of Hazrat Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him as he gave dowry to his daughter Hazrat Fatima R.A so they should remember that it was just comprised of two bowls. In today’s world, this crappy theory has turned marriage into a burden to a daughter’s father.
If we really tried so we could ease the Sunnah of Nikah by acknowledging the surcease of dowry. According to a report Pakistan discerns 2000 dowry-related deaths per year. In such cases, there are a huge number of girls who don’t want to tolerate the assault and feel helpless to struggle for the continuity of their marriages and committed suicide.
It is also the responsibility of the groom to deny the acceptance of dowry by his in-laws. He has to be so much ample through his mind, he should say that I’m enough for my favorite wife, I could manage all the outlay of your girl. But sadly, our grooms said we wouldn’t say no if they’ll give endowed dowry to their daughters.
On the other hand, it is also the concern of parents to stop thinking about the satisfaction of their daughter’s in-laws more than their daughter’s life safeguards.
Why 95% parents give dowry by their own, they have to stop this practice by breakup the rational thoughts. Now our generation, specifically our youth is broad-minded, it has to work out against this ancient proceed. If they would adopt a change in their acumen so it will be easy for all of us to diminish the countless disputed points begin from this social order.
