Marriage and Divorce By Dr Muhammad Jamil Ghazi
At last, an English translation of a book on the topic of marriage and divorce, that is easy to read and understand. This, along with the user-friendly format, make this book a must for every library. It includes the steps which should be taken before considering a divorce, as well as the steps which should be taken after deciding to divorce. The author succeeds in "engaging in the battle against religious ignorance". He uses the Ayahs of the Qur'an and the authentic Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad (SAW) to clearly educate the reader to the rights of the husband and the wife in the marriage relationship. He states, rather profoundly, that one of the most important aspects of the book is say to its readers "Islam is certainly an evidence against people and that the actions of the people are not an evidence against Islam". Even though the main focus of the book is divorce, the author has included chapters on "The Beauty of Married Life" and "The Fear of Recalcitrance and Brutality" which list the steps to be taken before divorce is considered. The chapters are a bonus to the readers and a reminder to us all to fear Allah (SWT).
