Wife Beating…Thoughts from an American Soldier

Ephesians 5:25-33 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

This is how a husband is to relate to his wife. Jesus Christ is the model. Look at the verbs in the passage above…

Love, love, gave, sanctify, cleanse, wash, present, be holy, love, loves, loves, nourishes, cherishes, hold fast, become one, love…

 

hijab domestic abuseDoes the Religion of Peace believe in wife beating? Does Islam allow a man to hit his wife? YES!!!

But only if she doesn’t do as he asks. The beating must stop if the woman complies with her husband’s demands. Behind verbal abuse and abandonment, beating is intended as last resort solution to coerce submission. According to testimony in the Hadith, Mohammad physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. It is not known how he treated his less-favored wives.

Here’s where it’s found in the Quran in case someone tries to disclaim this to you.

Quran 4:34 Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.  

Quran 38:44 “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath…”  

Allah telling Job to beat his wife Tafsir.

 

Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradhawi, one of the most respected Muslim clerics in the world, once made the famous and somewhat ridiculous statement.

“It is forbidden to beat the woman, unless it is necessary.”

He went on to say that “one may beat only to safeguard Islamic behavior.”

There is no doubt that wife-beating is a matter of religious sanction.

 

Mohammed beat his wife and recommended wife beating to others. Allah sanctioned and gave directions on how to beat a wife.

Jesus loves, nourishes, and cherishes His wife. Christ demonstrates self-sacrifice for His bride. He wants to present her as blameless. Jesus took her place and died on her behalf. Christ keeps His wife from punishment.

Mohammed or Jesus, what’s your choice???
