This new edition of the English-language treatment of Islamic personal status law gives practitioners and courts throughout the world direct access to this important body of law in its most up-to-date development. All Middle Eastern and North African Arab states are covered; new to this edition is coverage of provisions enacted in Kuwait, Yemen, and Sudan. The chapter on dissolution of marriage has been completely revised to reflect legal interpretation and judicial practice in this rapidly changing area of Islamic law. Also new and especially valuable are English versions of fundamental Shiite and Jaafari legal works with thorough analysis and commentary available. Dr. Nasir's methodology has been continued since the first edition of 1986. For each topic - e.g., marriage, dower, dissolution of marriage, parentage, inheritance, and waqf - he begins with a consideration of the subject in Sharia law, and then goes on to present legislation and contemporary views, in particular Arab countries. This approach, while it clearly manifests the continuity of Islamic law respecting personal status, is of value to judges and practitioners, especially those who must resolve disputes under Islamic law in non-Muslim countries. The Islamic law of personal status is of immeasurable significance to the lives of many millions of people of the Islamic faith throughout the world. This systematic account of the subject, and the explanatory references to both traditional Islamic treatises and modern interpretative texts, make this edition a useful guide for both jurists and students.
