The Goal of the Shari‘ah is Justice, Not Equality — Blogging Theology

Equality = the status of being equal, especially in status, rights, or opportunities; the same: people should be treated equally. This is unfair and immoral.

Equity = the quality of being fair; just: people should be treated justly. This is fair and moral.

For their discourse about justice (Ar. ‘adl, qist) is so often scarred by failing to grasp its Quranic essence: ‘To put a thing in its rightful place.’1 Which is to say, justice is to give things their proper due – at the due time, the due place, and in due measure.
