In Islamic marriages, Islamic Marriage Agreements, also knowns as Mehr, Mahr, Mahrieh, or Dowry (مهریه) are common. Such agreements provide for an agreed upon sum of money or items of value (such as gold or jewelry) to be paid to the bride either promptly at the time of marriage (prompt dowry) or at a future date in the event of death of the husband or in the event of a divorce (deferred dowry).
