How can one construct an egalitarian jurisprudence (fiqh) of Muslim marriage that is authentic to the tradition and functional in the contemporary context?

In this webinar, we will unpack the urgency of reforming discriminatory Muslim family laws in three regions: South and Southeast Asia, Middle East-North Africa, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Featuring Hala Al-Karib, Marwa Sharafeldin and Zainah Anwar, moderated by Hyshyama Hamin.
