Al-Ahwal: Jurnal Hukum Keluarga Islam is published twice a year (June and December) by Al-Qawaid Research Centre of the Department of Islamic Family Law, Faculty of Sharia and Law, Sekolah Tinggi Agama Islam Nurul Huda Kapongan Situbondo since 2022. Al-Qawaid always places Islamic Family Law, Gender Discourse, and Islamic Civil Law in the central focus of academic inquiry. Until now, with the fair procedure of double peer-review, Al-Al-Qawaid consistently publishes researches/studies concerned with those fields under various dimensions and approaches. The subject covers textual and fieldwork studies with multi perspectives.

In the beginning, the journal only served as a scholarly forum for the lecturers, professors, and students at the State Institute of Islamic Studies. However, due to the later development, the journal has successfully invited scholars and researchers outside the Institute to contribute.
