dc.description.abstract One of the essential parts of Muslim marriage is “Dower” paid or promised to be paid by the husband to the wife. Without mahr a nikha cannot be said to have been properly solemnized. Under the Muslim law, dower is sum money or other property which the wife is entitled to receive from her husband in consideration of the marriage in this research. Here was discussed the concept of Imbursement of dower rights; a study on married Muslim women in Dhaka city. An attempt has been made to describe some situation which may affect the Muslim women’s right to dower. During this study it was observed- firstly married Muslim women’s are not aware about their dower right. Secondly most of the married women’s are not responsive regarding how much dower amount was fixed during their marriage time. Lastly, it was discovered most of the women claimed that if they raised their voice about rest of the dower amount then conflict and bring unhappiness in their conjugal life. They want to keep the relationship at any cost. In this research tried to give some necessary recommendations to improve the existing situation, such as: all women should have adequate knowledge about human rights and women rights. Implement some rules such as during marriage time dower amount should be paid, or compulsory through a bank account to deposit dower amount. Marriage registration is confirmed during marriage time. Increasing social awareness and religious value among people regarding dower issue. en_US
