The present book is a study of the judicial trend since 1950 till date. The purpose of the book is to measure from well established principles of Islamic Law. The post-Constitution decisions have followed the earlier decisions. The study, therefore, includes analysis of some of the earlier decisions as well. It is not intended to present the original ideas on the subject but an attempt has been made to collect and compile the basic material at one place to demonstrate how the Indian courts have interpreted them in their task of administration of justice. Under Shariah, Muslim jurists say that administration of justice is a part of the great responsibility which is entrusted by Allah to human beings. This book is divided into several chapters in light of all relevant Quranic verses and hadith with concluding remarks. This book in different chapters and in their explanation provides food for thought to those who wish to understand the judicial attitude towards application of Muslim Personal Law. The language of the present book is simple, clear and approach is analytical.

The presentation of judicial trends in application of Islamic Law is in such a lucid way that it will give rise to some heart-searching among those concerned.
