Sahih International:

And give the women [upon marriage] their [bridal] gifts graciously. But if they give up willingly to you anything of it, then take it in satisfaction and ease.

1 Mufti Taqi Usmani

Give women their dower in good cheer. Then, if they forego some of it, of their own will, you may have it as pleasant and joyful.
