It is true that words used in verbatum are primarily and ordinarily the most reliable source of interpreting the meaning of any writing. It should, however, be borne in mind that laws relating to all subjects have a purpose or object to accomplish, whose sympathetic discovery is the surest guide to their meaning. MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE IN ISLAM — An Appraisal is an analysis of the revival of interest in Islamic jurisprudence relating to the institution of marriage and divorce, particularly in regard to the position of women. Most muslim countries in the world today have adopted the dynamic principle of ljtehad forming independent judgements on legal questions in relating to the aforesaid topics.
Dr. Zeenat Shaukat All has been awarded a Ph.d degree in Islamics (1984) by the University of Bombay. Though she pursued a course of studies in English Literature as her major subject for the Bachelors as well as Masters Degree through St. X'vier's College, Bombay, her main interest comprised in religious, legal and philosophical thought. The nourishment for religious thought was provided by her involvement with Quranic studies which she seriously pursued from the age of sixteen. The Quran not only literally introduced her to all the religions of the world, but showed her that all human beings were born with a free spirit to choose their path. "Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects Evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy Handhold that never breaks." (H.Q. 2:256).
