Model Muslim Marriage Contract

For several years, MWNUK has been collaborating with the Muslim Institute and progressive scholars to develop and promote a model Muslim Marriage Contract for those entering religious marriages in the UK, while also taking part in a campaign to promote civil marriage among British Muslims. In 2010, the MWNUK Chair has taken the lead role in developing a website dedicated to promoting the model contract and civil marriage, which was launched at the end of 2010. The website( contains information about Muslim family laws and women’s rights in other countries; classical Muslim jurisprudence and Sharia; and civil marriage. The MWNUK Chair is also part of a high-level discussion group organised by Stephen Hockman QC seeking to develop consensus recommendations from within the Muslim community to Government regarding Muslim marriages
