“Adat” in the Kingdom of Siak is a tradition based on Islamic Sharia called “adat bersendikan syarak, and syarak bersendikan Kitabullah”. For Malay people, what is called Malay is those who have Malay customs, speaking in Malay language and Islam. So, the customs and culture of Malay is based on Islam, if someone converts to Islam then he is called a Malay. The traditional foundation of Malay in Siak Sri Indrapura goes hand in hand with gender justice, which is guided by Islamic law. There is no difference between men and women who have many acts of worship, so that is a great reward without having to look and consider their gender first. Both of them have the same potential and opportunities to become ideal servants. For this reason, this proceeding will discuss how is the gender justice philosophy in the midst of Malay indigenous peoples in the Siak Sri Indrapura Regency? The method that used is juridical normative law which is also called doctrinal law research using the criteria of legal history. This paper is descriptive in nature, which means to provide a detailed, clear and systematic description of the problem of the main problem. In drawing conclusions using the deductive thinking method. Webster’s New World Dictionary states that gender is defined as the visible difference between men and women in terms of values and behavior. Hilary M. Lips defines gender as cultural expectations for women and men. This opinion is in line with the opinion of feminists, such as Lindsey who considers all the provisions of society regarding the determination of a person as male or female is included in the field of gender studies (What a given society defines as masculine or feminine is a component of gender). However, if we do a review or re philosophy, then gender justice in the Malay traditional community in Siak Sri Indrapura Regency has been realized, there is no difference between men and women, there is no discrimination and oppression, including sexual discrimination.
