One of the legal dilemmas of society in recent years is the burdensome dowry. Whether one can ban these types of dowries, in the form of law, is the issue that requires analysis, review and amenability. In legal societies, the tendency to prohibit these types of dowries can be seen to the extent that in the Family Code of 1391, the issue of one hundred and ten gold coins was raised in the first step and regarding the excess thereof, the solvency of the couple was determined as criteria for payment. However, given the vast consensus concerning the impossibility of prohibition and interpretation of the word "Qentar" among the jurists, was faced with serious doubts as to the possibility of forbidding it legally. The author believe that by considering the nature of the dowry in the legislator’s time, that can be deduced from some traditions and the opinions of some jurisprudents, as well as the nature of the dowry at the present time, one can ignore the concept of “Qentar” and thereby prove the possibility of enacting the law for the prohibition of burdensome dowries.
