In this guide, Islamic Relief presents an Islamic human rights perspective on early and forced marriage. It is useful for those working to end the practices in Muslim communities.
The guide calls upon families, imams, community leaders, teachers, health workers, governments and civil society organisations to work together to understand why child, early and forced marriage happens in Muslim communities, raise awareness about its harmful consequences, and address it by promoting a better understanding of human rights enshrined in Islamic teaching.
