Description from the publisher:
This book is an explanation of various types of valid contracts made convenient. The contracts have been certified by Shaykh Hassan Al-Hindi of Damascus. They should be torn out and used as they are; since a change in the wording of the Type 2; Type 3; or Type 4 contract may cause the stipulations to be nullified.
A vast amount of useful information regarding the legal measures of the marriage contract. Along with sincere advice on taking protective measures on having a written contract; and registering it legally according to the country of state is explained.
Finally; each contract; after its explanation is presented in one Arabic and 3 English fonts; providing a variety of originals for the bride and groom.
Perfect for anyone planning to be married; already married; or for mosques and Islamic Centers. Nothing of its kind has ever been written in English.
βIn their valuable and long overdue volume; Your Islamic Marriage Contract; Hedaya Hartford and Ashraf Muneeb address one of the greatest problems plaguing Muslims in the West; the lack of adequate; standardized wedding contracts. This problem leads to grave consequences including invalid divorces and marriages. By presenting the reader with a number of variously formatted forms; all written in consultation with one of the Muslim World's leading jurist consults; Hartford and Muneeb go a long way in addressing such problems. This book will prove an indispensable aid to Imams and Community leaders in America and elsewhere in the West.β - Zaid Shakir
