How much should be given for mahr

Q: I want some Ahadith about dowry system. Because my spouse’s family wants from me and I will not afford this. Kindly give me the answer.

Bismillaah

A: The ruling is that the mahr that is in vogue in your spouse’s family must be given to her.

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