A visit to the Sharia court

I am going to write a blog about inheritance and the many problems that arise when care and thought are not used. But that is for another time.

Today a friend and I went to the Sharia Court on Jebel Hussein and met a lovely Sheikh who was so helpful and kind. BUT what squalor they work in. I was shocked that the building was absolutely filthy and in a terrible state. How can you dispense justice in such terrible surroundings?

As an aside it was interesting to note that in 2005 there were approximately 51,000 marriages and 9,000 divorces. It seems the divorce rate has risen steeply in recent years. T
