As shared by @imamasad5550, her counterproposal was simple yet profound: she asked her future husband to dedicate himself to the spiritual act of reciting a specific verse from their holy book for a period of 40 days, a testament to her values and the importance she places on faith and devotion over material wealth.

The scene unfolded with the prospective groom engaged in earnest negotiations over the terms of the dowry, a conversation typically steeped in tradition and expectation.
