Is it permissible to delay the Mahr or part of it?
The entire Mahr or part of it can be paid in advance or deferred. The deferred amount should be paid when it becomes due. If no time is set for paying the Mahr, it must be paid when the husband divorces his wife. If he dies before paying it, it is to be paid from the deceased's inheritance. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family, and Companions.
