While matters related to Muslim personal law are now decided by the courts, the qazis still form an integral part of the community, acting as advisors and playing a crucial role in personal matters like solemnisation of nikah, talaaq and inheritance issues.
While many Countries have already had Woman Qazis in the recent past,India got its first Woman Qazi this year when two woman from jaipur became the first woman Qazi of India.Within weeks two more Woman Qazi were selected in Uttar Pradesh. Lets hope thatvthings contine to Improve.
First Woman Qazi from India
Jaipur: Breaking down stereotypes, Afroz Begum and Jahan Aara have become the first women Qazis in Rajasthan on 9th February 2016 after they completed a two-year training course from Mumbai-based Darul Uloom-i-Nisawa.
Begum and Aara, both aged around 40 years, said they passed the test to become Qazis on completion of their training and will now focus on women’s issues.
The First Woman Qazis in UP
UP : Only few Weeks after this Success,On February 24,2016,Hena Zaheer and Maria Fazal have became the first Woman Qazi of Uttar Pradesh and the Second in the Country.
Hena Zaheer is a 51 year Old Shia lady,while Maria Fazal is a Sunni Muslim who is Only 25,and Unmarried.But Despite the seeming differences, Hena Zaheer and Maria Fazal have a lot in common. Both are well-versed in Islamic law, having studied the Sharia in madrasas — the reason why they were picked as qazis by a group of Muslim women on February 24.
