Giving the woman half the Mahr if she is divorced before consummating the marriage
divorces his wife before consummating the marriage is obligated to pay her half the designated Mahr, unless she gives up this right. If the man has not designated a Mahr and has not consummated the marriage, the woman is entitled to the Mut`ah (a suitable gift), (Part No. 20; Page No. 64) based on his financial abilities. The case is not affected by whether the man marries another women or not, or remains married to a woman for a long or short period. Whatever the disagreement, the final decision is with the Shari`ah court. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
