Accepting gifts without the consent of one’s father

Q:

1. At the time of my marriage my relatives gave me gold ornaments as gifts but my father does not like at all that I receive those gifts. Can I accept those gifts without the consent of my father?

2. If I don’t accept those gifts to please my father, can I accept it after my marriage as I will be no more under his responsibility rather I will be under my husband’s responsibility?

3. If my father told me that I don’t like you accepting those gifts even after your marriage and I agreed to him, can I still accept them after my nikah or not?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Yes, it is permissible. However do not inform your father so that you do not disappoint him.

2. As above.

3. As above.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
