I was just struck by the amount. If we were to ask for 10 years of labour, that would be at least £100,000. Based on this, is it reasonable to ask for such a large amount of cash. And why is there such a substantial difference between that and mahr fatimi?When Musa as left Egypt for Madyan he married the daughter of the Prophet Shu'ayb. His mahr mu'ajjal was settled and paid off by binding himself to grazing his father-in-law's cattle for ten years without wages. Presumably Shu'ayb as had paid Safura on Musa's behalf.
And is mahr fatimi really worth just £300 (approximately)?
