  Qadi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Qadi (قاضى) is an Arabic term meaning "judge." The duties of a quadi are outlined in Sharia (Islamic religious law).
The responsibility of a Qadi is restricted to issues connected to religion, involving marriage and divorce, and inheritance, including the pious bequests (waqf), of which a qadi was often the trustee.
Charges of favoritism and corruption in the qadi are as ancient in Islam as anti-clericalism is in the West.

 Saudi Denies U.S. Charge That He Gave Bin Laden Aid
Qadi and the foundation — its six-member board included prominent figures like two members of the bin Mahfouz banking clan — are raising questions among Saudis about the investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks.

Qadi said all the branches of the charity were shut down at roughly the same time, after its founders decided that they could do just as well working through established foundations.

The work of the qadis became inevitably more and more specialized, and we may take it for granted that from the turn of the first/seventh century onwards appointments as a rule went to specialists, to persons sufficiently interested in the subject to have given it serious thought in their spare time.
The qadi was not any more the legal secretary of the governor; he was normally appointed by the caliph, and until relieved of his office, he must apply nothing but the sacred law, without interference from the government.
It was originally an honoriflc title given to the qadi of the capital, but the chief qadi soon became one of the most important counsellors of the caliph, and the appointment and dismissal of the other qadis, under the authority of the caliph, became the main function of his office.

Qadi Abu Bakr's early education was devoted to the Qur'an.
In all it is clear that the qadi exercised wide-ranging control over the everyday affairs of city and country and was closely involved in executive decision-making.
Eventually the enemies of Qadi Abu Bakr were successful in their campaign and, through their slanderous allegations, managed to incite the people against him, to the extent that one day he found himself under siege in his house in a similar situation to that faced by the Rashid Khalif, 'Uthman ibn 'Affan, in Madina.

His teacher al-Fanari realised that Qadi Zada was a young man with great abilities in mathematics and astronomy and he advised him to visit the cultural centres of the empire, Khorasan or Transoxania, where he could benefit from coming in contact with the top mathematicians of his time.
Construction of an observatory in Samarkand began in 1424 and, while the observatory was under construction, al-Kashi wrote to his father, who lived in Kashan, about the scientific life in Samarkand.
He published his methods in his Treatise in the sine and, although al-Kashi also produced a method for solving this problem, the two methods are different and show that two remarkable scientists were both working on the same problems at Samarkand.

 Chapter# 11: The Qadi and Sheikh Ali Converse
The Qadi, depressed at the success with which Sheikh Ali and his companions had defended their position, retired to his chamber, and kept thinking about the discussion, the strength of the Christian arguments, and ease with which those of his own party had been put aside.
He used, he said, himself to have the same ideas as the Qadi, and did not yield to him in pressing them upon learned Christians, as an unconquerable proof of Islam, until the veil fell from his eyes, and he found he had been, as it were, wandering in a maze.
The Qadi at last agreed that the Quran, as a mere composition, could not be considered a miracle; but still argued that its elevated teaching and sentiment altogether surpassed the range and ability of the men of the time.

The qadi - this time at the patih's urging - brought the young prince Abdul Qadir and the state regalia (upacara) to the mosque and in a brief ceremony pronounced the infant king.
This probably implied that the qadi was not the sole authority in legal matters, and that there was an overlap between his authority and that of other high officials.
The "Muhammadan law-book" mentioned may have been one of the standard works of Muslim jurisprudence (fiqh), which the qadi almost certainly owned,[32] but it is not impossible that the qadi in fact referred to a Bantenese digest of law similar to the undang-undang of the Malay states.

Under the Crown of Aragon, although the jurisdiction of the qadi was probably less impinged upon than that of any other Muslim official in the kingdom, [79] the continuity of qadi rule was severely threatened by the poltical uses to which it was put by the monarchy and its representatives.
In fact, these were not his only titles: in addition to being qadi of the two largest morerías in the kingdom, he was the faqi, scribanus, and çabiçala of Borja, the qadi, cavalquinus, scribanus, and amin of Huesca, and the alcaydus totius regni Aragonie.
