Islamic Family Law is a practical book which assists practitioners in meeting the needs of clients who wish to follow Muslim (Shar'ia) law - how to proceed with a case, what examples to cite and the most appropriate course of action. The book deals with the issues considered by the Shar'ia council including marriage and divorce, but will also include issues such as forced marriages and adoption, which are issues currently being dealt with at local authority level. Islamic Family Law explains the overlap with English law and provides a comprehensive explanation of the remedies available to Muslim clients. Islamic Family Law explains best practices and includes checklists and case studies. It has been written with the help and involvement of Shar'ia Councils and scholars and has been endorsed by Resolution and carries their codes of conduct and standards of practice. Contents 1.
