The research tackled one source of the legal rules related to the civil affairs. It investigated the rules of dowry in light of traditions. It pointed out that traditions always play significant roles in the process of establishing or writing the legitimate rules dealing with the amount of dowry the pride should receive. Islamic law looked at this dowry as one of the bride's legal rights and urged people involved in the process of marriage to determine its amount according to their traditions. Islamic law did not decide firmly the date of this dowry payment that can be immediate or delayed. Traditions often play a significant role in determining the date and manner of this payment. Islamic law, on the other hand, adopted the traditions point of view with regard to the person who should receive the dowry on behalf of the pride. It stated that the pride has the choice to personally receive this dowry or choose someone to do so. In addition, it highly considered the traditions' rules whether to regard any money given to the pride as a part of her dowry or as a gift. In the case of a disagreement between the pride and her father on the luggage with which she is provided, whether is it a gift or borrowed, Islamic law stressed the necessity of taking into account the judgment of the traditions
