Interpreting Divorce Law in Islam

Edited by: Jorgen S. Nielsen, Werner Menski, Rubya Mehdi

This book explores how equality in the right to divorce for Muslim men and women is interpreted within different judicial and theoretical frameworks. It also analyzes the differences between legislation and judicial processes, with the legislation varying between several Muslim countries. The book represents these variations with a broad selection of contributors. Furthermore, the book highlights the dilemmas for Muslim women when facing Muslim divorce law in Western countries, where the legislation is typically mixed with other systems of law.
