This book consists of a collection of works written by reputable authors who had initially presented their work at the International Conference on Family Law, Family Justice and the Maqasid al-Shari'ah. The Chapters in this book clearly draw the attention of the readers to areas that allow the family to grow in a sustainable manner. The book is divided into 6 parts for ease of reference. Part 1 of this book deals with Spousal Rights and Responsibilities which include financial and property rights as well as how these rights are affected when there is a breakdown of the family institution. Part 2 of the book proceeds with the issues surrounding children's rights and protection. The next part of the book is Part 3, is an intriguing part which consists of only Chapters that are very significant because they deal with a core aspect of the family which is often neglected. Part 4 brings the discussion outside the realm of rights and responsibilities owed to each other amongst family members and shifts the concentration of the discussion to examine the effects of using social media on the family. The book continues with Part 5 which features family law and the interface with International law. The book is ended with Part 6 which addresses the efforts of harmonisation of Shari'ah and civil law in Malaysia. This book would be of interest to judges, legal and Shari'ah practitioners, academics, students and one who wishes to examine a comprehensive and updated approach to family law in Malaysia and beyond so as to ensure sustainability of the family institution in the future.
