Committee on Social Reforms
(Brief Introduction)

Existence and emancipation of Indian Muslim community lies in the true adherence with the Islamic Shariah. This is the only way shown by the Holy Qur'an. The Board has been continuously striving for protection and application of Muslim Personal Law in India. The Board feels that creating awareness among the Muslim community about injunctions of Islamic Shariah is a step towards its reformation. The Board has taken up this task as a priority area.

The Board has been adopting resolutions on social reformation consistently and continuously signifying the importance it attaches to the issue. It has been urging all of its members to devote time for this important task.

The Board adopted a detailed resolution at its Hyderabad meeting on the issue of social reformation of Indian Muslim community. Afterwards, the Board again adopted a detailed resolution on the subject at Lucknow meeting. Therefore, President of the Board appointed Maulana Wali Rahmani, secretary of the Board, as national convenor of the Committee on Social Reforms in the General Body meeting held on April 5-6, 2003 at Lucknow. Various persons from different parts of the country were identified and contacted for appointment as state convenors. Correspondence was initiated by the national convenor for identification of issues and suggestion for modus operandi to be adopted for the purpose of introducing social reforms. The committee is planning to hold a big convention at the national level on the issue. Afterwards, the committee is also planning to hold seminars, symposia, and conventions at state and regional levels.

Committee on Darul Qaza
(Brief Introduction)

It is bounden duty of the Muslim ummah to establish justice. Establishment of justice requires discharge of obligations and enforcement of injunctions of Islamic Shariah. We can effectively discharge the obligation of establishing justice by faithfully adhering to the Shariah sent by Allah for guidance of humanity. In this manner we can fashion life of Muslims on the basis of Islamic injunctions. The machinery laid down by Allah for enforcement of Shariah injunctions and resolution of disputes in accordance with the will of Allah is called "Qaza", and the person entrusted with the responsibility of Qaza is called Qazi.

All India Muslim Personal Law Board adopted comprehensive resolutions on the issue of Darul Qaza at Hyderabad in 1985, Jaipur in 1993, Hyderabad in 2002 and Munger in 2003. The Resolution-4 of the Munger meeting requested the Board's President and said: "This meeting requests the Board's President to expand this important task (of establishing Darul Qaza) to cover the whole country and nominate a committee which may strive for and establish Darul Qaza in various cities and regions as per necessity and need.
