By Nazeer Ahamed

The conference organised by Tamilnadu Thowheed Jamath Coimbatore Chapter carried the slogan of “Anti-Dowry Campaign” to bring the awareness in the community and to bring realization among the youth in particular about the evil effect of dowry.

Since its inception Tamilnadu Thowheed Jamath is striving hard to eliminate the scourge of dowry from the Muslim community. To achieve this objective, it has been working for the decades and also succeeded its goal, it has created a community who affirms to this philosophy and abide to the law of the creator "Allah"

Allah says in Quran Chapter 4 An-Nisa Verse 4 "And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (obligatory bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) with a good heart;" while on the contrary the community takes dowry from the bride, the evil of dowry is rooted firm in the society and even masjid committee doesnt refrain from this evil practices.

Anti Dowry conference organised by Coimbatore chapter of Tamilnadu Thowheed Jamath (TNTJ) started around 7.00 pm, in which the Moulavi.Tameem presented the "state of youth" and the evil effect caused by the modern device "Cell Phone"

State Management Committe member Moulavi.Fakeer Althafi also spoke on the evil of effects of dowry. He citied the evil effects of dowry on the basis of Quran and Saheeh Hadith. He stated about the emotional hardship faced by a woman after marriage. He asked the audience to restore Islamic marriage values and avoid those anti-social activities in the community and the increasing rate of unmarried girls in the community, He also stated "Dowry" remains the base for the feticide, gas stove bursting, suicide.

Thousands of participants swear by ALLAH and raised their hands up and pledged that they will not take dowry for themselves or their children or give dowry to their children.

The conference also saw the participation of Muslim women in large numbers.

The anti dowry campaign ended with "Anti Dowry Marriage". The marriage was held on the stage and the nikah was as per the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammed (SAW).

The Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath has its members and volunteers spread around the globe. The basic requirement for being a member is that the Member of TNTJ shouldn’t take dowry from bride and shall not attend any such marriage which involves dowry. The members will be expelled from the Jamath if it is proven that he has taken dowry or encouraged dowry marriage.
