But now they refuse to return the ornaments what they had given and also told that she had no right to ask for the ornaments. Please give me answer clarifying right of ownership of the said ornaments.
The jewelleries which the girl received at the time of marriage and before the marriage and at the time of walimah all are gifts for the girl. After they came in her possession she alone became its owner. But the jewelleries which she got from husband after the marriage it depends upon the social customs, if it is given as chadhawa then the husband is its owner and if it is given as gift then the girl shall be the owner. The jewelleries and goods which the girl received from her parents she alone will be its owner. Thus she should be handed over all jewelleries she owns, it is a big embezzlement and injustice not to give it to her. Get this matter resolved with some reasonable persons after showing them this fatwa.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
