Abstract: The impact of globalization is a recognized fact. It affects every nook and corner of the world and Pakistan is no exception. Scholars have provided different definitions of globalization to convey its meaning comprehensively. According to some scholars, “globalization” refers to the global economic world while others define it as a global political world. Its impact could be positive as well as negative. It is argued that the globalization mixes almost all values of life in terms of economic, social, political, civil and cultural aspects. Muslim countries are adversely affected by its impacts, as many of its aspects oppose certain teachings of the Qur’ān and sunnah, which are fundamental to Muslim culture and society. As a result, younger Muslim generations are getting unfamiliar with their traditions and values. Pakistan also suffers from the negative effects of the globalization. Globalized culture influences politics, education, ethics, behavior, and religious attitudes. The educational system, social values, and ethics have degenerated but the negative effects are rampant on the family institution in Pakistan from various angles such as the lack of respect for parents, teachers, and elders among children. This situation is alarming for many traditionalist parents particularly and for the whole society generally. Islamic teachings help us to understand family as a unit of society in a broader spectrum. However, the negative effects of the globalization can be observed by exponential annual increase in divorce rate during the recent years. For instance, in 2016, twenty percent more divorce (talaq and khula) cases were reported. This number is increasing by each passing year. This imposes a threat to the fundamentals of our society. This thesis “Effects of Globalization on the Muslim Family System of Pakistan in the Twenty First Century” is a humble effort to understand the theory of globalization and suggest some ways to stop its adverse effects, which are painful to Muslim and Pakistani culture and society especially. Some principles are also described so that a Muslim or Muslim society can utilize the globalization. The research is based on the critical analysis of comparative values involving the institution of family in various societies. It also descriptively explains the issues related to marriage breakups. A chronological analysis of family cases decided in the courts of Pakistan is also a medium to find the divorce ratio in the recent past. The study concludes with few solutions to family disorder from the fundamental teachings of Islam.
