In the Name of Allaah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakatuh

I would like to know what is considered to be reasonable ammount as mahr to
be given to the bride after the nikaah?

I have found the hadeeth:

Narrated By Anas : Abdur Rahman bin 'Auf married a woman and gave her gold
equal to the weight of a date stone (as Mahr). When the Prophet noticed the
signs of cheerfulness of the marriage (on his face) and asked him about it,
he said, "I have married a woman and gave (her) gold equal to a date stone
in weight (as Mahr)."
Saheeh al-Bukhaaree Vol 7, Book 62. Wedlock, Marriage (Nikaah). Hadith 078.

Can we use this as a guideline inshallaah?

Jazak-Allaahu khairan.

Was-sallaam alaykum
