Our Vision and Policy

  1. Through its voluntary services, The Council provides assistance, guidance and resolution to married Muslim men and women seeking an Islamic divorce (talaaq).
  2. The Council does not provide a parallel judiciary service and only aims to offer a mechanism for obtaining an Islamic divorce, a religious obligation in Islam, which is not currently obtainable through the English courts and legal system.
  3. The Council does not adjudicate on any other matters or disputes and advises its clients to refer to the English courts in all such other cases.
  4. The Council maintains a policy of avoiding conflict between the law of the land and Islamic law in its deliberation.
