New Resource: Muslim Marriage Contract Website
It is with great pleasure that we announce that the Muslim Marriage Contract website is now live!
The website is designed for a UK audience, to provide much-needed information about laws, practices and classical jurisprudence about Muslim marriage contracts.
It promotes equality between the spouses through a model marriage contract, and also seeks to encourage couples to enter into civil marriages which will ensure greater security for women than unregistered 'nikahs' alone.
The model contract is a consensus document, developed through a lengthy process of community consultation. Since its launch in 2008 it has attracted a great deal of support as well as critiques. It is not a finished product but an on-going process which we hope you will be part of - all towards a goal of ensuring families are more equitable and thus more harmonious.
In presenting a website dedicated to the model contract, we hope to continue this process of information sharing and discussion within Muslim communities in Britain and abroad.
We would be immensely grateful if you could add on your own websites links to the Muslim Marriage Contract website and thereby ensure this valuable resource is accessed by as many as possible.
We also warmly welcome all feedback you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org
