Chapter Summary

It is the quality of the marriage contract itself which dictates the effects of the marriage. Marriage contracts have been classified, both by classical Islamic jurists and some modern legislators, into regular or valid (sahih) marriage contracts, irregular marriages, which are also known as defective or invalid ( fasid), and void marriage contracts (batil), although the Shiʾahs consider the irregular marriage equivalent to the void marriage. The dower and maintenance are matters of importance in their own right, and will be dealt with in due course, this chapter deals with the other effects of the valid, effective marriage, both under the Shariʾah and under the modern laws as applicable.

Keywords: Islamic jurists; marriage contracts; Shariʾah
