Family and Sharia’s Law

The United Arab Emirates, A civil law country, has a dual system of Sharia's and civil courts.

The Sharia's courts apply the Islamic laws and procedures and primarily handle matters of personal status such as family law, inheritance and successions of Muslims.

Some Sharia courts can also deal with civil and commercial cases.

The Sharia court at federal level (excluding Dubai and Ras Al Khaimeh) may also hear appeals of certain criminal's cases such as rape, robbery, driving under the influence of alcohol, etc.
