dowry vs. inheritance


my question is , can dowry be a replacement for women’s inheritance right  .. .?


No. Allah explicitly made remittance of dowry a categorical obligation (al-Nisa’ 4:4) just as He made inheritance rulings a categorical obligation. They are unrelated and cannot replace one another.
