Allah wants men to beat their wives

Allah wants Muslim men to beat their wives. According to this Islamic expert:

“The husband should remind his wife of the will of Allah. He should say, “Wife, if you pray your five daily prayers, maintain your chastity and obey your husband, you will enter paradise…” If this doesn’t work, he should move to the phase of “abandonment,” which refers to sleeping in separate beds. Abandonment means that he should sleep in a separate room, wouldn’t talk to her, and so on. If abandonment doesn’t work, we move to beating.

Yes, beating. What sort of beating does Allah prescribe?

But as the religious scholars have said, beating in this case is not the kind that draws blood or breaks teeth.

That’s good to know. See the whole thing here, word for word:

Here is another description. In this case, neither animals nor wives should be beaten in the face. The beatings “must not make her face ugly.”

Also note that in Islam, a wife needs to “comply with her husband’s desires in bed”:

Think of the levels of absurdity here. First, someone had to invent the idea of Allah (an imaginary man in the sky), and get people to believe it. Then he had to suggest that men should beat their wives and get people – including women! – to accept it. Then, people had to keep accepting it for centuries. And even today, Muslim men and women STILL accept the absurdity that an imaginary Allah wants men to beat their wives. How is this possible? Who are the people who would accept such absurdity?

    Is this the only source of Islamic beating the wife you have?

    Try the sources that teach what the verses in Islam really mean.

    http://free-minds.org/beating

    There are many muslims who prefer to use intelligence rather than a desire to control.

    [Yusufali Translation]: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear “Nushooz” disloyalty and ill-conduct , admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) “Idribuhun” beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).” (4:34)

    “Guarding what the husband would have them guard.” Is this refering to their faithfulness? I believe so.

    And if they are not faithful then yes men are told to leave their bed.

    From http://free-minds.org/beating:

    In some parts of the Middle East and other areas of the Muslim world, a woman may be beaten severely by her husband or male relatives for something as ridiculous as not having dinner prepared on time. It is a common theme amongst some male Muslims to beat their women whenever they think it is deserved and they can rest assured that the entire Islamic Scholars will be right behind them for support.

    Although this may sound bizarre, the Muslim Scholars have told people that God has ordained in His holy book that women may be beaten if their male counter-part is not pleased with them.

    (20,000 * 100) / 350,000,000 = 0.01%

    Aka: Fail.

    Excuse me…adjusting for greater decimal places;

    (20,000 * 100) / 350,000,000 = 0.00656% (rounded up)

    Let me guess, you hate my math and now realize how laughable your previous bragging is so you’re moving the goalposts and you want a mulligan so you don’t look like an idiot? Too late.

    I’m not going to look at more of your sillyness.

    Do something useful like join the Taliban. I hear they hate thinking and education too!

    JAB,

    I can’t watch the video. it has pictures of sisters without hijab. how dare you ask me to watch such filth!

    but in all seriousness, what is your point? it’s no surprise that vast numbers of people are deluded. just because britney spears sells millions of albums does that mean she’s the best musician in the world? far from it! if you want to look at some numbers check out these interesting statistics:

    JAB, are you retarded or just a little kid?

    no jab, you came in on the low road and now you’ve set out on a sinking ship. (hint: it doesn’t make you look any smarter to make fun of somebody’s screen name – that’s about the lowest form of debate out there).
    anyhow, you failed to respond to my question. and how about those statistics? 99.8% of all scientists acknowledge evolution as FACT. hell, even the pope has officially accepted evolution as fact.
    you don’t believe life evolved? perhaps you also believe the earth is flat. or that there is an invisible man in the sky who watches your every move.
    if you happen to believe the earth is not flat, then I recommend you try to convince one of the ‘believers’ on this board for people who believe the earth is flat (and there are thousands of them):

    maybe then you will get a sense of what it is like to try to have an intelligent discussion with an unreasonable person.

    There are no shortage of dumb people converting to both Islam and Christianity. What does this proof? Hemingway once said “All thinking men are atheists”.
