Question By : N. Nazeer Ahmed

Assalam alaikum,
What Ulema-e-Deen(Clerik of Islam)says about
If a father, on behalf of his Son (BrideGroom)offer to pay Meher either in cash/gold/property of his own, to a Bride at the Nikah (Marriage) ceremony, Is it legally acceptable? If so please through light of Shariet-e-Mohammadi(p.b.u.h)(Islamic Law)on this subject.
Becouse the root definition of Mehr according to the Holy Quran, the mehr is given as a free gift by the husband to the wife at the time of contracting the marriage.But during the recent time the bridegroom keep mum at the time of Nikah and the Mehr fomalities are met by his parents.Please mention even if a fahter pay Mehr on behalf of his son be acceptible or not.
Thank you, Wassalam
