Q. My husband took a loan and gave me Mahr after Nikah. Is this correct and is the Mahr valid?
A. If a husband gave his wife Mahr by taking a loan, the validity of the Mahr will not be effected by the husband taking a loan and giving the Mahr to his wife in any way. Hence, the Mahr was valid.
Yes, the responsibility to pay the loan remains the husband’s responsibility and not the wife’s responsibility.
