Islam makes it incumbent for the man to give a dowry to the woman he wishes to marry. This is an Islamic obligation upon him.

My question concerns cases where a Muslim man marries a Jewish or Christian woman who does not recognize it a religious duty upon the husband to pay the wife a dowry and does not expect to receive one. Does a Jewish or Christian woman still have the right to a dowry that a Muslim woman has when she marries a Muslim man? Is it the religious obligation of the Muslim man to pay her the same dowry that a Muslim woman in her place would receive? In this case, must he make sure to explain to her the right she has to receive a dowry so that the value of the dowry can be properly set? What if she does not insist upon a dowry after that?

I heard that a marriage will be valid even if it is contracted without any dowry given. Is this true? What is the proof? Also, is it at least true that they cannot consummate the marriage until the husband pays to her at least some of the dowry?

I am about to get married, but I am confused about what is called the mu`akhkhar (postponed dowry). I heard that it is like a debt that I have to pay to my wife. Can I agree with her that I pay it only if divorce occurs?
