A video clip of the marriage of two newlyweds, whose names are: Haider and Ghadir, has spread on the pages of communication platforms in and outside Iraq. The advance was a kilo of gold, while the remarkable thing was the backorder, which amounted to one billion euros.

The video sparked widespread controversy among the pioneers of the communication networks, between those who considered it an abuse in the status of a dowry, and those who considered the matter a matter for the newlyweds.

A third team went about questioning the whole issue, considering it an attempt to harvest likes, spread and attract attention on social networks.

The groom posted the video clip on his account on the “Tik Tok” website, called Haider Al-Faili, an Iraqi youth and digital content maker residing in Finland.

Al-Faili said in an interview with “Sky News Arabia” that he works in the field of advertising.

And the owner of the controversial video adds:

When a person is confident of the fidelity and love of the opposite party to the marital and emotional relationship, the dowry from the front and back is symbolic, regardless of its material value, no matter how high it is.
Thus, we do not care much about what commentators on social media say about the clip, which surprised us with its spread in such a large way, and it was certainly not our goal to publish the clip to attract attention and cause confusion.

Ghadir was not aware of the matter, and she did not ask me for a billion euros, since I had agreed without her knowledge with her guardian, who is her brother, and with the authorized person, that I would put this huge amount as a surprise to her and as an expression of my love and devotion to her.

Therefore, my goal is not to encourage the raising of dowries, and my message to girls about to get married here is to leave the issue of determining the value of dowries to young men, who propose to them with the aim of getting married, as I did with Ghadir.
