A true marriage story of a faithful Muslim Girl from Qum"-----

"The two couples from Qum Iran, When my father proposed to my mother…
He dedicated Surah Al-Imran, which he memorized by heart,
as her “Mahr” (dowry)And when my husband proposed to me,
my father told him that he would have to memorize a surah of the Qur'an as my mahr..
The wedding will not go on unless I have received my mahr.I was asked
to pick one of the Surahs… I chose Surah Al-Noor… For all the laws that
Surah contained within it and for the fact that it seemed hard to memorize
on my behalf.And before our wedding day; aside of being busy preparing
for our “Newly wedded Nest”… The Qur'an wouldn't leave my husband’s
hand an entire month as he was memorizing the surah…A few day before our
wedding day, my husband came to recite to my father
the surah which he had completed.
My father told him every time you make a mistake,
you would have to start from the beginning all over again )

My husband began reciting surah Al-Noor with his calm/gentle voice
in such a “beautiful” scene which I will never forget. My mother and
I would look at him my husband and would smile awaiting my husband to
make a mistake so he would have to start all over again and by that
increase my “Reward”…But my husband - May Allah bless him - had
memorized the surah off heart and didn't even forget one single verse of it.
Once he finished my father hugged him and said to him: “Today I shall
marry my daughter to you for you have fulfilled her mahr.. and your
pledge to me..”He sufficed me with Allah’s words as an oath/contract between us…
And the Question is….

I wonder what Surah you will chose as your mahr in
the future if this happens to you,,?.
