Why is it important?

Among the main conclusions of the study, we find that Sharia effectively considers the physical, mental, and cognitive differences in its prescriptive rulings. Such consideration is an aspect of the accomplishment of Sharia justice by legislators. In addition, disregarding these differences would be sufficient cause for legislators to become embarrassed and distressed.


The scientific value of the study is that we prove that the prescriptive legal rulings consider individual differences and that this process is a genuine principle in Islamic legislation that predated the emergence of the educational theories that advocate it.
