Cairo, August 01:

An Egyptian cleric has said on a religious television show that it’s okay for Muslim husbands to beat wives, so long as they didn’t hit them on their faces.

The Washington Times reports that cleric Mahmoud Al-Denawy responded to a question from a woman of Norway during a June 17 show on African Iqra TV that asked ‘What’s the Islamic view on the beating of wives?’

According to the reports the cleric also said that non-believers of Islam often use that issue as a point of criticism.

He further clarified that if a woman disobeys her husband, then the husband should first try to verbally correct her.

If that doesn’t work, he should then move to a different bed. And the last resort should be to beat her gently, but not on her face the report added.(ANI)

It is a delicate issue which

It is a delicate issue which cannot be explained in few lines. The truth is the Egyptian cleric has simply repeated what is written in Quran.

Whenever a person is placed in a position of authority he is given the means to enforce the authority. Example, a policeman carries a weapon; so does a soldier; A judge is given the authority to punish people; A Captain of a ship/plane is given the authority to remove people from his ship/plane. So on and so forth. All of these things are done in order to maintain law and order to ensure a peaceful society.

Authority without the means of enforcing it is a toothless and claw less tiger. Without Authority the society descends into anarchy and chaos.

Man as the head of the household is holding a position of authority. If wife violates the laws and disrupts the family, the husband has certain rights. He can verbally rebuke her, if that does not work he can remove her from bed, etc. and as a last resort he can beat her lightly as per the quran.

But at the same time the best man is the one who is best to his wife. The treatment of wives must be based upon kindness, love, affection, mercy and respect. This is the sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh).

Family is the brick of the society. Islam ensures that this brick remains strong. Divorce and separation is not a healthy option. Sterile marriages are not the way either.
