The position of women in Islam and Judaism has always been a controversial issue Jewish and Muslim women feel inferior to the men within their respective religions Women believing in these two religions remain subjected to unequal rights and privileges than those of men Profound similarities and differences occur in both of these Abrahamic traditions in regard to their philosophies and doctrines on the treatment of their women The primary role for both Jewish and Muslim women is as a wife mother and a keeper of the household They are responsible to act as a safeguard for their husband and family and should offer love and affection consolidation and peace The women should receive esteem and respect from all family members and her opinions remarks and suggestions should all be taken into account Jewish and Muslim women bear similar rights and obligations Marriage in both religions is seen as a duty to be fulfilled by every Jewish and Muslim man and women In Islam there must be a direct written proposal and acceptance of marriage from both man and women They give their mutual consent willingly The same gender equality in terms of marriage is applied in Judaism In terms of divorce a Jewish woman cannot ask for a divorce she can only receive a grant from her husband In contrast to this Islamic men and women are treated equally in this decision and share the same rights when it comes to divorce The legal rights of women in Judaism and Islam are quite similar but differ slightly on certain aspects Both Muslim and Jewish women have the right to buy sell and own property Both are entitled to an education Muslim women are encouraged to pursue an education In ancient times both women and men attended Muhammeds lectures Jewish women are not exempt from education although Judaism considers the womens occupation to be the caretaker of the household therefore education is not promoted
