The Qur’an enjoins Justice not ‘equality’

Men are legally obligated in Islam to spend of their wealth to maintain family and household, while women have no such financial burden. There is this verse: 

Allah thus commands you concerning [the division of inheritance for] your children: to the male, a portion equal to that of two females. [4:11]

All this is just to say that the Qur’an speaks of justice and equity, not the nebulous social construct of equality.
