Many family issues concerning non-Muslim have emerged ever since, the most important being the effects of unilateral conversion to Islam by one of the parties to the marriage.

This section is now amended so that such a person may marry if he or she obtains the written consent a of his or her father or mother; or b if the person is illegitimate, of his or her mother; or c if the person is an adopted child, of his or her adopted father or adopted mother.
