14 March 2017

The Ministry of Culture, Community, and Youth (MCCY) invites the public to give feedback on the draft Administration of Muslim Law Act (Amendment) Bill.

The Administration of Muslim Law Act (AMLA) provides for the establishment of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS), the Syariah Court (SYC), and the Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM), and the administration of mosques and wakafs (Muslim endowments).

The Government, in consultation with community partners and stakeholders, regularly reviews the Act to ensure that this unique piece of legislation is robust and relevant, stays up-to-date with new programmes and processes, and serves the needs of our Muslim community. The proposed amendments this year seek to reinforce Muslim institutions, enhance the management of Muslim assets, and strengthen Muslim families.
