Regarding giving gifts to one’s daughter at the time of her nikaah, Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) expressed his feelings and sentiments in the following words:

“At the time of my daughters’ nikaahs, I had given them some shawls, duvets and beddings which were of a good quality. Together with that, if there is a need, then I am not opposed to one giving his daughter the necessary dishes, utensils and cutlery. Giving jewellery to one’s daughter is also good; however one should be more concerned of the weight and value of the jewellery rather than the workmanship, since if there is a need for her to sell the jewellery to purchase necessary items, she may do so. Nevertheless, one should bear in mind that each person should give according to his means.” (Malfoozaate Hazrat Shaikh 1/97)
