Gold jewelry gifted by in laws.


Can I keep the gold jewelry that I got from my husbands family during the marriage. The jewelry was financed by my husband and not his parents and now the parents want to have the jewelry back.


Assalamu Alaykum 

Thank you for your Question. 

If the gold was gifted to you, then you are the sole owner of it (regardless who paid for it). hence, no-one can demand or take it away from you. unless, you willingly decided to give it to them. 

hope this helps,
