The study aimed to reveal the extent to which the Islamic jurisprudence branch included the issues and provisions of contemporary women in the curriculum of Islamic education for the secondary stage. It also aimed to explain what is meant by Islamic education and its characteristics in the school curricula, and to identify the role of the Islamic education curriculum for the secondary stage in building the student’s personality and introducing her to the issues and provisions that concern her at this stage. The two researchers used the content analysis method because it is the most appropriate approach for the subject of the study and the most appropriate to achieve its objectives. The study tool was limited to analyzing the Islamic jurisprudence branch in the Islamic education curriculum for the secondary stage that is approved for teaching in secondary schools in the Arab community in Israel. It is clear from the results of the analysis that the Islamic jurisprudence branch ignored most Issues and rulings related to contemporary women. Its goals and contents have focused on the field of worship without other fields of Islamic jurisprudence such as communications and personal status, and on one aspect of worship represented in the ritual appearance without the social and cosmic appearance. These results confirm the weakness of the design of the Islamic jurisprudence branch in the Islamic education curriculum for the secondary stage and states how it lacks the legal issues and rulings that the student needs to know.
