Accepting provision from the father-in-law

Q 5: What is the ruling on a husband taking provisions from his father-in-law for marrying his daughter?

A: This is permissible, and it is prescribed that the husband should designate the woman’s Mahr (mandatory gift to a bride from her groom) at the time of concluding the marriage contract, even if it is a small amount. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
