Muslims want their marriage agreements to comply with Islamic law(Sharia) as well as be enforceable under South African Law.  Ismail Mohamed having an LLB degree as well as an Islamic studies degree is uniquely qualified to ensure that your marriage contract is sharia compliant and enforceable under South African Law. He will also ensure that your marriage contract include your unique personal requirements. .

At Ismail Mohammed Attorneys we realize that Muslim marriage is a legal contract that both parties enter into freely and that above all traditions and a sense of culture needs to be maintained when entering into such a contract. Living in the particular environment that we do doesn’t always assist in delivering the best possible outcomes for both parties.

So it is with this in mind that we promise to respectfully approach whatever needs and requests you may have with regards to Muslim marriage law holistically and without prejudice or bias.
