AL-‘ADL-The Utterly Just The Embodiment of Justice
The One who rectifies and sets matters straight in a fair, impartial and equitable manner.
The One who always acts justly. The One who delivers absolute justice.
The One whose wisdom of justice is based upon complete knowledge of past, present and future.
From the root ‘a-d-l which has the following classical Arabic connotations:
to act justly, fairly
to be equitable, impartial
to adjust properly, to make even
to straighten, to rectify, to establish justice
to balance, counterbalance, to make equal, uniform
to turn one away from something, rightly direct
to make comfortable with what is right
The term ‘Adl is not specifically used as a Beautiful Name in the Qur’ān.
Although a situation may seem unfair to us due to our limited understanding, the Supreme Justice is absolute and unerring in fairness and equality.
