Push Present in Islam: Permissible or Not?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I wanted to know about “push present” which is a gift from a husband to his wife for her giving birth of the child. It is usually called “push present” because the wife pushes the baby out. Is a push present allowed in Islam? The wife usually expects a gift from the husband because she has suffered nine months and labour as well. Is it ok for her to seek a gift from her husband?


A: A present is given with love and mahabbat. Gifts are not given as formalities. In the process of these formalities the very essence of gifting is lost.

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