One of the subjects which has recently been in the centre of attention of lawyers and supporters of women's rights is the issue of "Deeye" (financial remedy) written in the "Islamic Penal Code".According to this Code, "Deeye Nafs" for a woman is half of the "Deeye Nafs" for a man. For example, when a man murders a woman, the killed woman's family has to pay half of the man's "Deeye Nafs" to the killer before he is been executed. Apart from the protest by some supporters of women's rights, some lawyers, jurists and experts in Islamic law, have criticized the said rule, saying that this rule is not consistent with Sharia (Islamic Law).On the other hand, some lawyers and experts in Islamic law seriously support this rule, believing that it is perfectly consistent with Islamic law. They also opposite to any change and amendment in this respect. This article, however, while has examined these two part of views and their reasons, tries to present a solution for prevailing this problem.
