Rabita Madaris Islamia Committee
(Brief Introduction)

All India Muslim Personal Law Board considers Madaris (Institutions of Islamic Learning) are basic to the "protection of Islamic Shariah" in India. Currently, Madaris are being insinuated and subjected to adverse propaganda by vested quarters. The Board feels that the misconception and misgivings being spread about Madaris need to be countered effectively. Keeping this object into consideration, the Board constituted a committee named "Rabita Madaris Islamia Committee" under the convenorship of Maulana Syed Salman Hussaini Nadwi in its General Body meeting held on August 18, 2023.

The committee deliberated upon the strategy and prepared a framework for effective protection of Deeni Madaris.

The Board took up discussion on the subject in its meeting held at Hyderabad and decided to strengthen the movement to protect Deeni Madaris. Munger meeting of the Board held on April 5-6, 2023 reiterated its earlier resolutions and decided to take up the movement in an organised manner. The General Body meeting of the Board decided to contact all Deeni Madaris of India and seek full details regarding the matter.

Maulana Syed Salman Hussaini wrote to the Deeni Madaris all over India and requested them to provide full details about them. A form was especially prepared for the purpose of gathering necessary details was also sent with the letter. The committee is continuously working on this information collection work. In near future, the committee shall formulate a comprehensive framework in the light of information collected by it.

Nikahnama Committee
(Brief Introduction)

Islam attaches great importance to Nikah. The Board has been trying to resolve the emerging problems in respect of this important aspect of family life in Islam. Therefore, the Board, in its meeting held at Mumbai on October 28-30, 1999, constituted a five-member committee under the convenorship of then President Hazrat Maulana Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi (Rahamatullah Aley) for drafting of a standard Nikahnama.

The issue of a standard Nikahnama was discussed in various other meetings of the General Body. Finally a draft of the Nikahnama was presented before the meeting of the Board held at Bangalore on October 28-29, 2023. The draft was discussed and returned to the committee for reformulation.

The Board is still endeavouring to formulate a standard Nikahnama which may work towards resolution of problems arising in the contemporary Muslim society. Therefore, the Board has reconstituted a five-member committee in its meeting held at Lucknow on September 22, 2023. The convenor of the committee is Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani. The committee has been tasked to look into the earlier draft and finalise a standard Nikahnama.

The committee has held several meetings and the finalised draft of the Nikahnama shall be presented before the Board soon.
