Husband not paying mahr

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: It will be 1 year in May since I done my nikah. During this time my husband still has not given me my Mahr. We both live in different city’s but he travels every weekend to spend some time with me. During this whole time he has not provided anything for me e.He has never bought me anything since we have been married and I have bought him endless things and also borrowed him money which I have asked back for. He still hasn’t given it back. He owns his own business so he is not short of money. It really upsets me that it’s going to be almost 1 year and he still hasn’t given me my mahr. Please advice me on what I should do?

A: The mahr is your haq. He has no right to deprive you of the mahr.

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