At the invitation of the club about one hundred women, more than half of whom came from different parts of our country, gathered in capital of Russia. But the important thing was not even the number and quality of the audience because they were female activist of the Islamic Ummah, each of whom shows in their region social activism, working for the religion of Allah and is a member of a Muslim organization.

Of course, this was discussed in the context of the topic of polygamy. The results of these interventions were developed and unanimously approved in the draft of resolution. Also it was initiated the formation of a working group that will implement the adopted initiatives, chief among them is the development of a unified marriage contract, which will be invited to be used in every Muslim family.

It is necessary to say a few words, that the working group will be comprised of big Alims, scientists, lawyers, psychologists from all regions of Russia, and from each of Muftiat. According to Muslimas, such an agreement is required, it can protect the Islamic marriage, in particular - women's rights. Congress participants also suggested the development of a memo for newlyweds on what each member of the marriage union has rights and responsibilities. It will be distributed to imams to give newlyweds on their wedding day.
