Media Release: Affairs on Muslim Personal Law
The Muslim Personal Law has been followed by the Muslim community in Sri Lanka for centuries. It is the duty of every one of us to protect these laws which has been implemented since a long period until today.
The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama strongly opposes bringing changes in the Muslim Personal Law either due to international pressures or stimulation of any evil forces acting against the Muslims.
There is no difference in opinion to bring certain changes according to the present situation within the Shari’ah compliance. As a part of this, in 2009, a sub-committee was appointed, under the leadership of former Supreme Court Judge Saleem Marsoof, to propose amendments to the Muslim Personal Law and the final report of the sub-committee is about to be released. At this juncture, we wish to clearly state to the Government that due to any international pressures, it is not appropriate to appoint a new committee to bring amendments to the Muslim Personal Law.
To ensure that the amendments to the Muslim Personal Law are in accordance to the Islamic teachings, the Muslim religious scholars, professionals and the Muslim Parliamentarians should be actively engaged in the necessary activities. The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama has also collaborated with the concerned parties in carrying out the needful.
Islam is a religion that encourages social reconciliation and coexistence. Islam teaches us to adopt a soft approach while rectifying evils. While taking measures to safeguard the rights, the Muslim community, should stand within the Islamic guidelines.
Failing to adhere to the teachings of Islam with regard to speech and displaying of high moral character, we will be guilty of not conveying the correct understanding of Islam to others. The ACJU strongly condemns such practices and wishes to point out that these types of extreme behaviors might lead the way towards encouraging the extremists’ programs.
Similarly, we wish to stress that the extremist activities of some people should not be taken as an example of the whole community. We, the ACJU, request the Government and all others to work towards the continuity of the unity and coexistence which the communities have been enjoying for many years in Sri Lanka.

Narrated Abu Sa`id:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Do not abuse my companions for if any one of you spent gold equal to Uhud (in Allah's Cause) it would not be equal to a Mud or even a half Mud spent by one of them."
