This book explores how equality and the right to divorce for Muslim men and women are interpreted within different judicial and theoretical frameworks in a variety of countries across the world. The contributors consider the differences across several Muslim countries between legislation and judicial processes.

Interpreting Divorce Law in Islam also highlights the complex dilemmas faced by Muslim women in western countries, where legislation is typically mixed with other systems of law.
