Abstract: This study shows the important place of Muslim women in the civil society of Jerusalem during the period 1831–1841 (i.e., the Egyptian period) via their right to own and use property according to their own volition. I have analyzed these issues according to the following questions: What was the attitude of local society with respect to Muslim women’s rights to dispose of their assets as they saw fit? Was this accepted by local society or not? As revealed by the documents, whereas Muslim families in Jerusalem generally accepted the principle of the right of ownership and use of property by women, nonetheless, this study shows that numerous families in Jerusalem did not, in reality, accept these rights.
