To whom does the wedding presents belong?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: The gifts and money that people give in shadi belong to whom? The bride or her parents? Usually it is a practice in Pakistan that whatever money people give, they give it in the hands of the mother of bride, and she spends it on food and other expenses in shadi.

Bismillaah

A: It will belong to the person who the giver has intended.

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