Everyday Islam: “The beatings must not be hard. It is more of a psychological beating… to humiliate the wife.”

In a fatwa session posted online, Kuwaiti cleric Othman Al-Khamis cited the Quranic verse pertaining to wife-beating, and said: “The beatings must not be hard. It is more of a psychological beating, the purpose of which is to humiliate the wife.” He further explained that “he shouldn’t break her bones, and he shouldn’t beat her on the face.” A video of his statements was posted on his YouTube channel on January 31.

    Another victory for Western feminism, since they love islam so much. When can we see pictures of Imam Trudeau beating his wife. It would be so diverse.

    Funny, I’ve never felt the need to humiliate a woman I was with.

    Again how is Islam an improvement let alone a final revelation with this crap? Again how does Islam respect women when beating them is divinely sanction3d
    Again how does humilating a woman persuade non Moslems on the veracity of its claims?

    in the end i reject islam because its claims about God are so repulsive, absurd and contrary to reason

      Any thinking person should reject Islam because every aspect of it is totally contrary to the Golden Rule. To humiliate or shame anyone, especially the mother of one’s children is utter depravity.

    The beatings will continue until morale improves.
