This is a comprehensive and up-to-date textbook on Malaysian Islamic family law. The themes are thoroughly researched, and the conversation is backed up by legal and religious authorities. To ensure a full examination of the issues that arise, the perspectives and practises of several schools of thought are considered.

The second version of this book includes fresh revisions to the existing Islamic family law statutes in Malaysia, as well as updates on how Islamic family law is applied in Syariah Courts. The book is divided into 17 chapters that cover a variety of topics related to Islamic family law, including betrothal, the requirements of a valid marriage and their registration, mahr, polygamy, reconciliatory committees and hakam, types and methods of divorce, 'iddah and ruju', maintenance and its enforcement, and ancillary issues such as mut'ah, the distribution of matrimonial assets, legitimacy of children, adoption, and child custody.

This book should prove to be a useful textbook in English for law students as well as a valuable resource for lawyers.
