Islamic Divorce

Muslims believe that the Islamic marriage ceremony, the Nikah, is imperative, in accordance with Sharia. The Nikah is not considered a valid marriage under the English legal system, however many Muslims do not undertake the civil marriage, and therefore do not have a “legally” valid marriage. Thus the parties will merely have the rights of cohabitees.
