Is Mahr necessary in a Nikah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Darulfiqh.com

Question:

Is Mahr necessary in a Nikah?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Answer:

In the Quran, Almighty Allah Ta’āla says:

“So that with your wealth you seek (to marry) binding yourself in marriage and not only for lust.” (Nisā: 24)

Thus, the jurists have stated that Mahr is binding in a Nikah. It is the right of the woman.
