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?
