Muslim Personal Law or Islamic Law ? This work is a discourse by the renowned scholar of our time Shaykh al-Islam Allama Mufti Sayyid Muhammad Madani al-Ashrafi [may Allah preserve & protect him] regarding the Indian Government's legislation regarding 'financial maintenance' for divorced women, affecting all faiths and backgrounds.
Extract from the Translator's Introduction :
Leaders think and talk about the solutions.
Followers think and talk about the problems.
When the wise put pen to paper, whilst instilled with the worry of the Muslim community and concern for the sake of Islam, such words become reflections of truths and realities.
This book is full of realities and solutions presented by Shaykh al-Islam to the citizens of India, the authorities of India and to the entire Muslim community. As a member of the last category, once I had read the Urdu, the style of the author's writing, reinvigorated the heart and brought such a feeling of pride and satisfaction of being a Muslim that I felt this could not be restricted only to the Urdu language, rather those heart-felt words should also benefit the English-speaking audience and the younger generations.
Although the reason for compiling the book was in response to a sensitive un-Islamic decision taken by the authorities of India, yet the underlying principle and solution the author emphasised was for all Muslims to adopt their religion fully and wholeheartedly. As for students and learned scholars this book also caters for their technical needs, as the classical scholarship of Shaykh al-Islam shines through which contextualises his abundance of knowledge and plethora of wisdom into planting the trees for the coming generations to reap their fruits. ---Mawlana Muhammad Hasan, Jamia al-Karam, Notts, UK.

present were Mufti Azam e Hind, Allama Shaykh Mufti Mustafa Raza Khan, alayhi ar-Rahman, and Madani Miya's Spiritual Mentor; Hadrat Sarkar e Kalan - Allama Sayyad Muhammad Mukhtar Ashraf al-Ashrafi, alayhi ar-Rahman.
