The division of joint assets based on contributions in marriage is one of the considerations by the judge in deciding joint property cases. This means that the sharing of joint assets does not refer to Article 97 of the Compilation of Islamic Law, namely that joint assets are divided in two for each party, but divided by 2/3 for the wife and 1/3 for the husband in certain cases (casuistik).
