Do Muslim husbands have permission to severly beat their wives if the wife dont obey them?

Sahih International

Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband's] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance - [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.

"strike them"

  • Ummmmm, yes. Surrah 4:34 Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

    No they are not allowed to beat their wives.

    "According to the Qur'an the relationship between the husband and wife should be based on mutual love and kindness. Allah says: "And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell in tranquility with them, and He has put love and mercy between your (hearts): verily in that are Signs for those who reflect." (Ar-Rum: 21)

    The Qur'an urges husbands to treat their wives with kindness. [In the event of a family dispute, the Qur'an exhorts the husband to treat his wife kindly and not to overlook her positive aspects]. Allah Almighty says: “Live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and Allah brings about through it a great deal of good.” (An-Nisa’: 19)

    The verse you quotes is mistranlated, it doesn't mean Men are in charge but rather their protectors.

    It is important to read the section fully. One should not take part of the verse and use it to justify one's own misconduct. This verse neither permits violence nor condones it. It guides us to ways to handle delicate family situation with care and wisdom. The word "beating" is used in the verse, but it does not mean "physical abuse". The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) explained it "dharban ghayra mubarrih" which means "a light tap that leaves no mark". He further said that face must be avoided. Some other scholars are of the view that it is no more than a light touch by siwak, or toothbrush.

    this text true but you need to explain i will give you video from Imam , but you should watch it all then ask me , and its not when the don't obey us , its only in one case if woman didn't give the husband his right in SEX for long time , btw beating should be small hits that don't leave a mark on her body and its not allow to hit her face , beat is the last option tips of fixing this problem .... 1. you should talk to your wife if she didn't lsn then 2. don't give her right in sex too if she didn't mind too then 3. beat ( but beat with Rules and limits ) everything in the video ,

    when the wife don't give her husband the right of having sex this so dangerous , because sex is not allowed only for who married > one of the Goals of marriage ( in Islam ) is to save the husband and the wife from failing in the wrong ( having sex without marriage as i said its not allow ) so if the wife didn't give her husband his right of having sex can you imagine whats gonna happen , first he could cheat on her , second he is gonna have sex with women not allowed for him , which will lead to vice in the Islamic society like AIDS ,i Illegal children .......etc , that will cause alot of damage

    LETS NOT FORGOT , Beat is in one case , beat is the last option , Beat shouldn't be in face because face is beauty for woman and should be small hits ( not too strong or for long time ) many people now go to court or Imam to advice wives


    >>>> VERY IMPORTANT <<<<

    Allah order husband and wife to live in love to respect each other needs , if the wife didn't allow for the husband to had his right of sex then how that could be an obey Allah order to live in love ??? Sex is right for the wife and the husband ( we are talking here when woman refuse to give her husband right of having sex for long time )

    LETS ASK OURSELVES how many woman wouldn't give her husband sex for long time like 2 weeks ?? very very very Small numbers
