Sexual Abuse against Women (SAAW) has increased, but existing norms have not been able to minimize it. There are differing perspectives between feminist thinking and intellectualist interpretation of the causes of SAAW. This study aims to determine the causes of SAAW in the Ash-Shabuny Tafsir and the Australian ulama’s perceptions of its interpretation. This study combined library and field studies with thematic methods. The results showed that Ash-Shabuny's thinking about the causes of SAAW was different from the Textualist and Liberalist Mufassirin. Ash-Shabuny blamed both women and men in the case of SAAW. According to him, the causes of SAAW are: women do not cover their aurat; men and women do ikhtilath, and they both enter people’s homes without permission. This view is shared by Fundamentalist Australian Ulama who tends to blame women. In contrast, according to the Australian Ulama Moderate and Liberal, SAAW is caused by the values in society and weak law enforcement.
