Antenuptial marriage contracts

Question ID: 28271


I am an attorney and I am often approached by my muslim clients in respect of the registration of antenuptial marriage contracts, which should also comply with the islamic proprietary consequences of marriage.

There are two options in south african law namely:

ANC with accrual – where in the event of divorce according to south african law the spouse whose estate has shown the larger growth during the duration of marriage, the growth in that spouses estate will be divided between the spouses

Anc without accrual – whatever a person brings into the marriage will remain their property, and that is all they are lawfully entitled to at the end of the marriage.

Kindly advise.

Further, please advise whether there are any courses on islamic law which can be studied?
