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?



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.
