Keywords:Minor Age Marriage, Council of Islamic Ideology, CII, Hadīth, Sunnah
In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the concept of supreme sovereignty and the idea of legislation in accordance with the Qur'ān and Sunnah formed the basis of the Islamic Ideological Council. After the establishment of Pakistan, this organization was established in various provisions of the constitution and finally came into existence in the name of "Islamic Ideological Council" in the constitution of 1973. Article 230 of the Constitution of 1973 defines the duties of the Council. The Council of Islamic Ideology is a constitutional body established to make recommendations to the Majlis Shura so that the laws can be adapted to the Islamic style and formulate such principles. Although, it is compatible with the spirit of Islam and Parliament and Assemblies can take guidance from them while enacting legislation. While fulfilling its official duties, the Council made recommendations from time to time regarding the laws made in Pakistan at different times. According to the prevailing family laws of Pakistan, a girl must be at least 16 years old and a boy must be 18 years old at the time of marriage. And after discussing the queries in their meeting, they made suggestions. In this article, a research and analytical study of the Council's recommendations related to the laws of early marriage will be carried-out in the light of Hadīth and Sunnah.
