Book: Marriage according to the Five Schools of Islamic Law

This book, volume 5 of 8, presents the similarities and differences in the issues regarding marriage from the viewpoints of the five Schools of thoughts.

The Islamic fiqh (jurisprudence) is divided into several sections: ‘Ibadat (rituals) that include: ritual purity (taharah), prayers (salat), fasting (sawm), alms (zakat), one-fifth (khums) and pilgrimage (hajj). These six chapters are included in the first part of the Book al-Fiqh’ala al-madhahib al-khamsah (Fiqh according to five schools of Islamic Law), which was published first by Dar al-‘Ilmli al-Malayin, achieving unprecedented circulation, that prompted this foundation to republish it for the second, third and fourth time, all of which have run out of print.

The second section of Islamic fiqh contains the Individual conditions (al-‘Ahwal al-shakhsiyah), that include: marriage, divorce, will and bequest, endowment (waqf) and legal disability (hajr), which constitute the second part of the book published by Dar al-‘llm li al-Malayin, whose copies have run out of print.

Some honorable personages suggested to the Dar to republish the two parts in one volume, of which the first part to be ‘Ibadat and the second al-Ahwal al-Shakhsiyah. The Dar has complied, as the subject of the two parts being one, by the same author. I hope that this work will be beneficial for the readers.

This work on the Shariah or Islamic Law offers a comparative study of the Divine Law that, according to authentic Islamic doctrines, embodies the Will of God in society. In the Islamic world view, God is the ultimate legislator. The five major schools that are used in the comparison are: Hanafi, Hanbali, Shafi’i, Maliki and Jaf’ari.
