According to the famous theory in Islamic jurisprudence regarding diya, the diya of a woman, generally, is considered as half in comparison with a man’s. To prove it there are some reasons attributed to quran, Sonnat, Idjma and qeas. In spite of the famous view, there are a few of early jurists who argued for being equal of dyia for both woman and man. Their rationale is the generality of the quran’s verses concerned, the weakness of the original of related sonnat, inconclusiveness of the alleged idjma, and the in correction of qeas. The latter, which has been supported by contemporary theorists and also has affected high level policy- makers, is in consistent to the common spirit governing and aims of Islam, on the one hand, and closely matches the existing public demands and current requirements, on the other hand.
