All groups discussed primarily revolved their religion among the Roman Catholic Church. All of the above Hispanic groups use the Spanish language, however pronunciation and word choice call for a few dissimilarities in the language.

In Christianity it is believed that Jesus Christ was the savior to all humanity and was sent to Earth by his father (God) to pay for the sins of all mankind. In Judaism on the other hand, Jesus was merely a prophet. Both Christianity and Judaism were established in Israel. Christianity was founded around 30 AD in contrast to Judaism which started around 1000 BC. Although a few sacred readings and the form that followers pray are similar in both religions they are also slightly different.

But in the west this statement is misinterpreted which shows specific issues and differences. These differences is where the stereotype of Islam being assessed of teaching the oppression of woman. * This stereotyping does come from these laws of the west from the misinterpreted understanding of the Qur’an, the rights they enforce are a woman’s testimony is only half or a man’s, that woman are cheated out of half of their inheritance, that the Qur’an allows wide beating, that men can divorce on a whim and have four wives, and that Islam promotes unfair isolation. * Women are unfairly assessed with these misinterpreted rights from the west.

Most of us might blame the situation of Saudi women on a strict and intolerant religion, a lack of education or even a lack of awareness of Saudi women about their rights. Some of these assumptions may be partially or entirely correct, but why is it that other Muslim countries such as Jordan, treat their women better? Can religion be blamed for the treatment of Saudi women? According to popular belief, the women’s biggest oppressor in Saudi Arabia is the Sharia laws, or Islamic law. Surprisingly Sharia laws ought to have offered liberation to women across Saudi (Rahman p 356-9).
These are mandatory to every Muslim at all times, unless the individual is unable to perform them due to sickness or age. All in all, it is safe to say that commitment in no joke is Islam.

The Shahadah, the practice in which an individual declares his faith in God and confesses that Muhammad is the messenger of God. The statement “I declare there is no god except God, and I declare that Muhammad is the messenger of God"(Qu ‘ran 3:191) is to be said with pure sincerity and great commitment.
It just advices women to use the hijab as an act of obedience to God. Secondly, women wearing hijabs become a very visible sign of Islam. While Muslim men can blend easily into any society, Muslim women are often put on the line and forced to defend not only their decision or not to cover their bodies but also their religion. Thirdly, women who use the hijab lose their identity as women because they cannot dress appropriately according to their gender. It is not certain that the hijab frees women from being seen as sexual objects of desire or from being valued for their looks or body shape.
He admonishes you that perhaps you will be reminded. In Surah An-Nahl, verse 90, Allah command mankind to be justice and do good deeds to each other. Also, Allah forbids His mankind to do bad deeds or any oppression against any mankind. For us as a Muslim, we are obliged to do good deeds to anyone, even to the non-Muslims. For the Muhsin, he will definitely do good deeds as he is obeying the command from Allah as if he is seeing Allah and be seen by Allah.
