“My daughter is more important to me than a few scraps that they write on the list.” With these words, the father of the bride, who wrote in the list of marital movables for her, summed up, “He who is entrusted with the offer does not ask for money” instead of writing a list of matrimonial movables and gold, as is the custom of newly married couples.
And a picture of an empty movable list with the inscription, “Whoever is entrusted with the offer does not ask for money, fear God for our generosity,” has spread on social media and received great interaction and admiration from thousands of followers because the list did not contain any movables or gold, as is the norm from families and those who They compete in filling it and raising its financial value.
The list included the name of the bride, which is: Maryam Nasser Abdul Latif Makhlouf, and her groom Muhammad Ali Al-Madawi, and it was removed with the signature of the groom, and as soon as the picture of the list was published on social networking sites, I found a great interaction from followers and prayers that God bless this marriage and an invitation to adopt the idea and spread it throughout Egypt, This resulted in the rejection of some girls due to fear of treachery by their husbands.
Nasser Abdul Latif Makhlouf, an inspector at the Ministry of Environment, said the father of the bride-owner of the list is from Belqas, in the province of ADakahlia “My daughter is more precious to me than a few karakib that they put down on the list, and if God forbids anything in marriage, they will take care of them at home.”
He added, “The groom proposed to my eldest daughter, who is a textile engineer, and I felt that he is a respected and respected son, and our Lord will take care of her. I am looking for the happiness of my daughter, not carabiners, whatever their value. I did this to relieve the burden of our young children. And I had to start and set an example on that.”
He continued, “I have been thinking about this idea for a while and I suggested it to many of my friends, but they were afraid of implementing it, so I decided that I would implement it with my eldest daughter and her sister, and when he presented to Mary the groom, I decided to start implementing it immediately because my daughter is really more expensive than any amount or number that is written in the list and I talked about this idea With the imams of mosques, and they all appreciated it because, God forbid, if the marriage was not completed, the end would be a few karakib that would be thrown into any store, and at that time these things would not benefit my daughter, but when I presented the idea to the family, they all rejected the girl, her mother and her sisters. Everyone said no, but I insisted and convinced them.”
He continued, “The day the book was written, I wrote these simple words on the list, so I was surprised by the astonishment of the groom and his family, and the groom insisted on writing any amount and asked me to take checks or trust receipts on it, but I refused, of course, and told him I give you the most precious thing I have and there is nothing worth it to write it on the list. In fact, the groom was affected and accepted me. He promised me that he would protect it with his life, and that is what I want.”
For her part, the bride, Maryam Nasser Makhlouf, a master’s researcher at the Faculty of Agriculture, Mansoura University, said, “In the beginning, I was upset when Papa said he would not make a list. I said people would talk to me and say her father threw it, but when I first read what was written in the list and I saw the groom’s reaction, I cried.”
And about her marriage, she said, “The family’s first acquaintance with the groom was only one month ago, when he and his family came to my engagement, and they talked about the connection and the matters that are discussed in such sessions, and when they talked about the list of movables, my father said to them when the date of the marriage contract comes, we will talk about it and here the exclamation marks appeared. But my father’s polite way of dealing with them removed any wonder, as he told them, “We are never going to disagree on these matters.”
She added, “I was surprised that my father said that he would not make a list,” and we preferred for a month to talk about this issue, and I and the rest of the family objected, but he said to me: “I can’t find anything that appreciates your value, your value is great, strong and my daughter is not valued for money.” Of course, in the first I was not convinced, but I gave in to his insistence.”
And she continued, “When the time came to write the book, and my father bought the list paper, and they sat down to write the book, I did not attend this session, and I was surprised that my brother told me that Baba did not write anything on the list and said literally there is no number on the list, frankly I was very upset and affected because he implemented his words despite My objection, and I wanted a list like the rest of my friends and relatives, but frankly, when I first saw what was written in the list, I was happy and cried with joy. Also, the groom’s reaction was very impressive because he wanted to write a number on the list and he said to my father, you, write what you want and I will go to it, but my father insisted He writes only one sentence: “Whoever is entrusted with the offer does not ask for money, fear God for our generosity” and asked the groom to sign, so everyone was crying.
She pointed out that her father’s reaction greatly affected the groom, saying, “I was surprised that the groom calls me and says your father carried me a heavy load, and I hope that I am up to his confidence.” Then he said, smiling seriously, “I will never be able to talk to you.”
