Marriage for Dowry and Theft: Allah’s Judgment

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: If a woman marrys a man simply for the dowry then steals from the man forcing a divorce how does Allah judge this case?


A: Obviously every person is dealt with according to his intention. If her intentions were corrupt she will be treated accordingly. The hadeeth says that the one who deceives us is not from among us.

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