Halim, Rubina (2010) Islamic Law forbids forced marriages. Irish law Times, 28 (9). pp. 144-146. ISSN 1649-4164

Trawling through articles in the newspaper and the internet and watching programmes on the
television, it became clear that the government in the UK is focusing upon the cure of forced marriages rather than the prevention. Unfortunately, there still seems to be much ignorance surrounding the issue of forced and arranged marriages for all concerned. This article is written from an Islamic law perspective with the hope of assisting the reader to understand the procedure of marriage, focusing on the differences, consequences and the legalities, particularly for the Muslims whose lives are dictated by Islamic law, the Shari’ah.
