[quote=Emad]A husband can’t beat the wife by making marks on her, he can’t hit her face or anything like that. He can lightly tap her, nothing more. The prime example for a Muslim is the Prophet peace be upon him and he never beat his wives. Therefore a Muslim husband should follow his example and not do so either.
In the case of a woman, what is she to do? Can she beat her husband? It really won’t work in most cases. Here is how it works: They woman would complain to a judge and the judge would try to work things out. If it still doesn’t work wise a just relatives from the male and female side would come and try to work it out. If the women doesn’t have family or is distanced from them, the Islamic government takes their place and fight for her.
you say that Muhhamad did not beat his wives, really?
sahid Muslim, 4 - 2127
When it was my turn for Allah’s Messenger to spend the night with me, he turned his side, put on his mantle and took off his shoes and placed them near his feet, and spread the corner of his shawl on his bed and then lay down till he thought that I had gone to sleep. He took hold of his mantle slowly and put on the shoes slowly, and opened the door and went out and then closed it lightly. I covered my head, put on my veil and tightened my waist wrapper, and then went out following his steps till he reached Baqi’. He stood there and he stood for a long time. He then lifted his hands three times, and then returned and I also returned. He hastened his steps and I also hastened my steps. He ran and I too ran. He came (to the house) and I also came (to the house). I, however, preceded him and I entered (the house), and as I lay down in the bed, he (the Holy Prophet) entered the (house), and said: Why is it, O 'Aisha, that you are out of breath? I said: There is nothing. He said: Tell me or the Subtle and the Aware would inform me. I said: Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be ransom for you, and then I told him (the whole story). He said: Was it the darkness (of your shadow) that I saw in front of me? I said: Yes. He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?…
it clearly says your prophet hit Aisha.
So you are saying that beating does work with women, and not with men. Can you elaborate as to why?
also, you mention judges, goverments, etc. So i have to again, repeat the same question:
where in the Quoran is that methodology that you describe written?
Listen Emad. if it is not written there in the Koran, why don’t you just simply answer that’s the case?
If it is not written in the Quoran, simply say so. No need to give your personal opinions.
