Giving a gift to a newly-wed

Q 2: If a person marries and then his family gives him money and slaughters animals as gifts for him to help him with marriage costs, will this gift be lawful for him or not?

A: A gift is a permissible means of owning. When a person gives another person some money or the like as a gift then the latter can take hold of it; it belongs to him. Consequently, the money and animals given for the mentioned person as gifts are lawful for him.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
