As much as I researched, I found some texts (such as: www.afkarnews.ir) which indicates that apparently the Meher (dowry) of Hadhrat Fatimah-al-Zahra (as the wife of Imam Ali (a.s.) was a military armor.

I was wandering if it is considered as a true matter? If so, would you please present some related sources? Moreover was it all of her Meher or there were other things as well?

(Note: please submit your references based on authentic hadiths)

  • @Sassir, although your mentioned question looks to be somewhat similar (and helpful), but, in detailed they are two pretty separated questions, factually, your mentioned question states regarding its place (of marriage) as where was it, but my question is concerning the details/circumstances/deal of its Meher. Anyhow, I appreciate your attention. Sep 15, 2017 at 16:02

As there is no authentic ahadeeth regarding the mehar but mostly it is narrated that hazrat ALI RA had a JIRAH which he sold to hazrat USMAN RA for 400 hundred dirham ( silver ) which was the mehar of hazrat FATIMA RA which jirah was also returned by hazrat USMAN RA to hazrat ALI RA as a nikah gift

And Allah knows better
