Islamic family law has been in existence in Malaysia for a long time. Its execution has been, for the most part, smooth and progressive. That said, occasional issues do arise in the implementation of the law. Women still face problems such as those associated with a dissolution of marriage, abuse in polygamous marriages, delays in case management in Shari’ah courts, and abuse of their rights after a divorce. Similarly, issues surrounding a child marriage and maintenance neglect are also among those that require urgent remedial actions.
