June 25 - June 26

This two-day course will unpack the legal implications of the Muslim marriage contract by considering:

  1. A brief historical context relating to the non-recognition of Muslim marriages in South Africa
  2. A synopsis of the legal implications of the non-recognition of Muslim marriages in South Africa
  3. An analysis of South African case law that recognises the Muslim marriage as a contract and its legal implications
  4. The significance of imams being registered as marriage officers under the Marriage Act 25 of 1961
  5. The way in which Muslim marriage contracts can be drafted as ante-nuptial contracts in a way that is consistent with Islamic law and South African civil law.

The course will include a component that will provide attendees an opportunity to practice drafting a Muslim marriage contract.
