Bengali to English translations [PRO]
Law: Contract(s) / Marriage
Bengali term or phrase: Den Mohor
1. I need English translation of the term "Den Mohor" as used in muslim marriages in Bangladesh. The translation must be in a way that a non-muslim/non-bengali (european) person understands the meaning accurately and unambiguously. Dowry or Dower seems incorrect to me.
2. English translation of the terms: 'Muarzal' and 'Mu'ozzol' would be helpful too.

Please note that 'Muarzal' is wrong spelling of Mua'zzal

In fact Mu'ozzol' is also not correct to represent 'Muazzal'.

To be precise, the first one is with Arabic letter '`Ain' and the second one is with Arabic letter hamza or alif. You put it in the Arabic Kudos forum to have a better explanation.
