Sheikh Ahmad  Kutty, A Senior Lecturer and an Islamic Scholar at the Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, states the following: “Islam teaches us to abide by the laws of the land; for at no time, Islam prefers anarchy and lawlessness. And if hypothetically we’re residing in a land where they don’t have Shari’ah courts in this country we are to govern ourselves by the existing laws as best as we can. After all, marriage and family life are not personal issues; rather they have direct bearing on communities and societies.
