Syed Khalid Rashid's Muslim Law

Syed Khalid Rashid (Author) V P Bhartiya (Author)

The comprehensive work lucidly explains the principles of law governing muslims in India. The new fifth edition of this very popular work has been thoroughly revised and updated with case law brought up to date. Some more recent developments pertaining to the resoulutions passed by the Muslim Personal Law Board and other parallel organisations have been noted and discussed.

Recent attempts and suggestions for modernizing the law to cope with the changing social norms and exceptations, and issues of national interest, have been taken note of and discussed by the author, to spur thinking in this direction.

Landmark decisions affecting and changing some of the socially incongruous concepts relating to divorce, mehar, maintenance, remarriage on motivated conversion, wakf beneficiaries, wakf boards, pre-emption, primogeniture etc. have been incorporated.

A significant feature of the book is the exhaustive analysis of the constitutional aspects of Mohammedan law principles. Further, the interactions between the personal law and social ethos have been elucidated by notes. Opinions of academic jurists have also been included.

The detailed subject-index and table of cases add to the utility of the book.
