This is the third revised and updated edition of a work that provides a detailed and systematic account of the legal aspects of Islam and modern Arab Islamic legislation with specific regard to the rights and obligations of women. Addressing in particular the legislation of the arab world states, the study ontains essential information on a wide range of topics including dower, maintenance, the iddat, parentage, fosterage and custory, and also a particularly valuable section on marriage and the dissolution of marriage. The work is an important source of reference not only for legal practitioners, university libraries and other academic institutions, but is also of general interest to those directly concerned with the subject, particularly Muslim communicaties in non-Muslim countries, Muslim women worldwide or non-Muslim women who may be married to Muslims
