Description

The conversion to Islam is widely misunderstood and misinterpreted. This book analyses the concept of conversion under Islam in the light of Quaranic Provisions and examines the different problems generated by such conversions in India.

On account of the existence of various personal laws in Indian legal System, the Conversion to Islam gives birth to manifold problems and the badly affected area is marriage. The book analyses the various rules governing conversion to Islam and their relationship with Hindu, Christian, Parsi and Jewish personal laws. To achieve a complete harmony between conflicting matrimonial laws, some measures have been suggested which may prove useful in resolving those controversies.

The book will be of immense value not only o the students of law but to the lawyers and researchers alike.
