    The basic Islamic law has changed in recent years. Initially, it was based on Shariah, the religious law. This set down precise terms of rights and duties. It was abandoned in the 1920s, considered to be impractical in modern circumstances. Now Islamic law is based on European secular concepts. But family law has remained firmly in the province of the Shariah.
