Al-Juwayni elaborated the Islamic judgements within the context of the concept of benefit (maslahah) and divided it into five groups. Al-Ghazali does not give any place to the fifth group, which is said to be "too rare" and cannot be comprehended by reason, takes the first two groups as they were, and combines the third and fourth, and so, reduces the benefits into three groups as the essentials, the complementary, and the embellishment. In addition, he clarifies the benefits as the five item of the protection of religion, life, reason, generation, and property. Fahredin al-Razi counts life as the first, and religion as the fourth. Later, the enumeration which counts religion as the first spreads out. Ibn Abdisselam writes an independent book on the benefit and gives detailed information on its degrees.
