The report, released by the World Bank on "Women, Business and the Law", states that after observing 187 countries, complete equality was found in only six countries those were Belgium, Denmark, France, Latvia, Luxembourg, and Sweden. In Islamic society, the husband is the head and guardian of the house while the wife is the equal helper of the husband in domestic affairs and child bearing, this creates an ideal family.
This article argues that in the Western concept of equality, men and women are held equally responsible for the payment of all social obligations, while in Islamic teachings both are required for an ideal marital life. A high standard of equality has been presented by defining rights and duties according to one's abilities, physical constitution and psychological condition.t

Key words: Human Rights, Universal Declaration, equal role, determine.
