In a multi-disciplinary approach, this text discusses the historical, social and legal contexts of Shari'a law reform in South Asia. It examines the law's methodology and juristic bases, the debate between traditionalists and the modernists over their legality, the resultant political and social tensions and their success in improving the social position of Muslim women.;The study argues that through a creative adaptation of law to the changing needs of society, Islamic values and modernisation can be made compatible and Muslim women assured full legal rights.
