Mas Kahwin and. (ahem)... Ulama

It's a three-fold increase in Selangor, from RM80 to RM300. But, don't go planning to go to Pahang or Johor where the rate is still RM22.50.
That makes the rate in Selangor the highest in the country, after Sarawak and Sabah where it is RM100.

The Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) says there's a good reason for the increase in "mas kahwin".


and in Kelantan, there's more to being an ulama. Best of all, you get the Tok Guru's consent and approval. Or is the revered Tok Guru sending us all a message?

mas kahwin naik rm300 xde hal sgt, dibandingkan dgn HANTARAN KHAWIN yg saban tahun makin naik smp beribu2 berbelas ribu ringit siap dgn belanja hangus itu lah yg harus diteliti dan dilihat semula....

Kerana Hantaran Kahwin yang beribu2 berbelas2 ribu ringit ini lah punca utama ramai postpone dulu nak bersanding sbb nak kumpul duit .......

I agree politically with Nik Aziz 100%.

But when it comes to him wanting to defend Islam by even making 'polygamy' seem OK, that's rubbish.

I agree with Hawaii five-O. The real problem is with the 'duit hantaran'.In my opinion, we must control the amount of 'duit hantaran' between RM 5000 to RM 8000 per wedding session. Above RM 8000 is outrageous and below RM 5000 is considerably low.... That's my humble opinion....

Salam Puan Ena,

Mas kahwin RM22.50 kat Johor murah sangat la... rasa macam segan pulak bayar ciput. Lagipun, mas kahwin tu kan pihak isteri yang dapat. Jadi RM300 kat Selangor still ok lagi.

Yang mahal sangat ialah macam H5O cakap atas tu... hantaran kahwin.

Make marriage a good, noble and easy thing. Too much hassle and people may not do the right thing. If you know what I mean.

We glorify the wedding ceremony too much wanting it to be "different"..hence the demand for high "duit hantaran" to cover the wedding expenses. plus with the "hantaran" or gifts that brings the cost of wedding sky rocket high. The 'mas kahwin" is intended for the wife and I see no issue it being raised. but put a cap on the "duit hantaran". do not force the groom to be into debt..sometimes the couple is heavily indebted even before they begin a new life together and the first 5 years is dedicated to clear off the wedding debt. what is even more shameful sometime the marriage lasts only few years..

What is RM300, when one can spend RM300 per hour on a single 3 hour night on Chinese or Indonesian kupu kupu malam.

On Kelantan so called Tok Guru to the so called "solution", I am with him as long the Ulama as mentioned is not PAS ULAMAK!

love to guru

Salam,

Untuk makluman di Kelantan kita tak ada hantaran kahwin, hanya mas kawin dalam lingkungan RM5000 Semua tu hak pengantin perempuan la.

patriot jawa johor said...

why la malays always kecoh kecoh about these sorts of things, be like chinese. wedding very expensive - go and pow the guests la. one guest must give ang pow at least rm100 each. wedding invite also says - no need to bring gifts, just money for ang pow, lots of it. also got ledger book to list down how much each guest give. siapa bagi sikit malu la. that way no need mas kawin lah, hantaran lah. susah je tu. dah kawin bankrap. marriage is supposed to make us happy, not to bankrupt people la.

ENOUGH SENSE FOR MARRIAGE?

The real value is not in the dollar but the common sense
How can there be a proper marriage when money is so dense
Not having enough even to build a proper and decent fence
What then is there to come to the poor groom's basic defence

Too much focus on wedding ceremony and hantaran.

Too little focus on after marriage and kids.

Rukun nikah dalam Islam apa dia?

1. Pengantin Lelaki
2. Pengantin Perempuan
3. Akad (Ijab & Qabul)
4. Wali
5. Dua saksi

So mas kahwin tu bukan rukun. Terpulanglah kalau nak bagi ke tidak..janji ikhlas beri dan terima
