Islam provides comprehensive guidance to its followers in every sphere of life, belief, prayers, social behaviour, civil conduct, personal and social relationship, family affairs and personal life.Islam has given a code to the Muslims in all these matters. It is for the reason that the source of those laws which embrace the personal and family lives of the Muslims (commonly known as Personal Law) is neither the practice (Urf)and conventions, nor customs, compromises, human decisions, the experiences and advice of philosophers, intellectuals and moral preachers. In Fact the fountainhead of the social order and Personal Law of Muslims is the Book (Quran)revealed by Allah and the Sunnah (of the Prophet) which explains and elucidate sit and on the veracity and trustworthiness of which every Muslim has an unshakable faith. Thus, these laws of Muslims are an integral and inseparable part of their religion which are based on the guidance given by the Prophet under divine inspiration. Therefore the issue of their Personal Law is not merely a cultural issue or an issue of customary practices for the Muslims Rather it is an issue which concerns the safeguarding and conservation of their religion which burdens them with grave responsibilities and they are, as a result, very sensitive about it.
