This video is in response to those who say `Islaam allows wife beating!` hmmm, let`s analyse...
This is one of the most common Qur`anic passages that is misunderstood and misused by both Muslims and non-Muslims. It is verse 34 of Surah an-Nisa. The English translation of this verse reads as follows:
`Men are (meant to be righteous and kind) guardians of women because God has favored some more than others and because they (i.e. men) spend out of their wealth. (In their turn) righteous women are (meant to be) devoted and to guard what God has (willed to be) guarded even though out of sight (of the husband). As for those (women) on whose part you fear ill-will and nasty conduct, admonish them (first), (next) separate them in beds (and last) `beat them`. But if they obey you, then seek nothing against them. Behold, God is most high and great. (4:34)
Thus, if a woman rebels against the teachings of Islaam, then he should follow this method of admonishing her, forsaking her in bed and hitting her. But that doesn`t mean he has got permission to beat her black and blue! Islaam has explained, what is meant by `hitting` it can not be harsh in any way or cause injury. Al-Hasan al-Basri (Tabieen) said: this means that it should not cause pain. `Ata` said: I said to Ibn `Abbaas (Sahaaba), what is the kind of hitting that is not harsh? He said, Hitting with a siwaak and the like. [A siwaak is a small stick or twig used for cleaning the teeth - Translator]
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: `The best of you is the one who is best towards his wife, and I am the best of you towards my wives.` (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 3895; Ibn Maajah, 1977; classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami, 3314)
