Qadaa, qaza, qazaa, kaza or caza ( qaḍāʾ , plural أقضية aqḍiyah ; Ottoman Turkish: ), literally "jurisdiction," is a term for a second-level administrative division in Iraq and Lebanon, and for a third-level administrative division in Jordan and the former Ottoman Empire.

The qadaa was formerly a second-level administrative division in Syria; now this is called Mintaqah.

The Ottoman pronunciation gives the usual English forms, kaza or caza.

In the Ottoman Empire, it was an administrative district subject to the jurisdiction of a judge (qadi) and governed by a kaymakam. It was a subdivision of a sanjak and corresponded roughly to a city with its surrounding villages.

The early Republic of Turkey continued to use the term kaza, but renamed them to ilçe in the 1920s.
