This book consists of proceedings of the seminar organised on November 20-21, 2009. The strains and stresses afflicting the family life in the modern times are not hard to seek or identify. In fact the family life is passing through a very critical time. The very fabric of the family life is increasingly exposed to fissures. It was on the bedrock of the family life that the social structure was built but now it is under serious threat of erosion. A stable and viable family structure could be built only on the solid foundation of the teachings of the Quran. A perusal of the papers included in this collection would give an idea of the basic features of the family life that Quran wants to builds, the family structure as it existed in the early days of the Islamic history and that needs to be emulated. Moreover, it would give an idea about the teachings of the Quran regarding complex problems that pose a threat to the very survival of the family structure.
