The Hermeneutics of Islamic Law in Reviewing Changes to the Minimum Age for Marriage

Muhammad Shofwan Taufiq, M. Fahruddin


This research aims to explore the perspective of Islamic legal hermeneutics in addressing the issue of changing the minimum age of marriage. The minimum age of marriage is a controversial issue that relates to the protection of children's rights, gender equality, and the interpretation of Islamic legal texts. This study employs a hermeneutical approach as a theoretical framework to understand the interpretation of Islamic law regarding the change in the minimum age of marriage. The research also involves an analysis of the changing societal views on the minimum age of marriage. In some cases, societal perspectives have evolved with changing times and increased awareness of the protection of women's rights. Therefore, this study attempts to identify arguments that support or oppose the change in the minimum age of marriage from the perspective of Islamic law. The results of this research are expected to provide deeper insights into the interpretation of Islamic law regarding the minimum age of marriage and its implications for efforts to protect women's rights and bring about social change within Muslim societies. By understanding the contribution of hermeneutics in interpreting Islamic law, it is hoped that more directed efforts can be made in formulating policies that align with the principles of Islamic law and humanitarian values
