Question 37:I would like to ask you a question about the nature of diyah (blood money)? Is it a divine punishment or considered a kind of reimbursement of the losses? Does it make a difference when the crime is committed intentionally or unintentionally or by mistake?
Answer 37: Diyah is retribution and a punishment from God. It is not to be considered a decisive factor in determining and establishing values. Thus, there is no difference between a man and a woman in terms of their value and also between the various types of murder.
