The study aimed at monitoring violence against women in the popular Palestinian proverbs, highlighting its forms and ways to address it from an Islamic educational perspective. The study adopted the content analysis as a technique of the descriptive-analytical method. The sample of the study consisted of 144 proverbs. The study concluded that the Palestinian popular proverbs include multiple forms of violence against women: physical, psychological, social, sexual, economical, and honor violence. The study presented a series of steps to address violence against women, starting from correcting the perceptions about women by referring to the right concepts of Islam, purifying religious interpretations from misconceptions against women. Moreover, the study highlights Islam›s view of women as a human being preserving their dignity in educational curricula, activating the role of formal and informal educational institutions to purify heritage from negative concepts against women, and limiting the distorted proverbs related to women and women›s roles.
