Salam aleykoum,

what jobs or activities muslim women cant do ? For exemple i know they cant be jugde but are there also other jobs they cant do ?

She can be businesswomen of any business that is not prohibited within Islam. She can be a teacher, she can be a researcher, she can be a doctor what else ?

I think a woman can be a judge in a secular court; she can't be a religious judge. 

She can't lead men in prayer. (Is that a job?)

She can't be a model of immodest fashions, unless she can be fairly certain she will only be seen by women. The same would apply to acting - she must maintain hijab whenever in public view. 

She can't be a pop musician. 

She can't operate banks that lend at interest.

She can't sell alcohol.

There are no absolute restrictions on any job or career or hobby.  A woman or a man should maintain proper modesty and societal order, but within limits a woman or a man can do whichever work they choose.

Salam thanks brother but i was talking to specific activities or jobs ok for men but not for women and if i am not wrong muslim men also cant sell alcohol, cant sell alcohol , cant operate banks that lend at interest and be a pop musician. 

So are you sure that she could be a judge in secular court but not in religious court ? Also for exemple could a muslim woman be president or leader of a country ?

A women can't be a Judge in Islamic society because islamic system has no secular courts.

Women can't be a ruler and judge in Islamic society but she can be a political adviser and any job in judicial court except judge.

For those who said a woman cannot be a judge, this is not correct. We discussed this before. Iran has female judges who do not preside over criminal cases but they do hold positions such as in Divorce Court or Juvenile Court, etc.

Different scholars have different rulings on whether a woman can be a judge or a leader in a secular system. Other than possibly that, she can work any job, so long as modesty is maintained.
