Mother-in-law Hugging Her Son-in-law

Q: Assalaamu Alaikum.

Can a mother-in-law hug her son-in-law for
special occasions like Eid day and even kiss him?
Also, along with giving money or jewellery as a mahr,
can a groom recite a part of Qur’aan to his bride
as part of his mahr to her?

Wa Alaikum As salaam,

Yes, a mother-in-law can hug her son-in-law and kiss him on the cheek or forehead since he is a mahram to her. However, if the mother-in-law is not old, then she must not do this out of precaution.

The groom cannot recite part of the Quraan as a part of his Mahr to the wife.
