A sociologist from Qatar, UAE, has met fame overnight for the wrong reasons. In a video uploaded by him, he explains how to beat ones wife in the right way. The Video is supposed to be a Muslim man’s guide on how a man should discipline his wife.
The video was uploaded by a Qatari sociologist named Abd Al Aziz Al-Khazraj who starts off by putting forward a few questions while giving us answers for it. He asks if one should beat his wife every day. In his words he asks, “When one is married, there are a lot of questions that come up asking whether it is necessary to beat one’s wife? Should one beat one’s wife every day? No.”
He goes on to show how a husband should beat his wife with love. He says, “"The beating should be light. The husband must make his wife feel the femininity and her husband's masculinity."
In the video he is shown demonstrating it on a boy not more than ten years old. He lightly taps him below the shoulders on the arm while trying to recreate a argument that could happen in between a husband and wife.
In the video he talks about how the man is the leader of the house, and should portray his masculinity to his wife while she is reminded of her femininity. He, through this video, is trying to teach Muslim men as to how a man should show his masculinity, and exactly how lightly they should beat their wives without hurting her or bruising her.
"The Prophet Muhammad... Look how merciful Islam is. The Prophet forbade striking the face. He forbade men from beating their wives on the face", "Slapping the face, hitting the head, punching the nose - all of this is prohibited. The beating is for discipline," are some of his 'lessons'.
He says in the video, "First, we must understand that the man is the leader of the house. A leader has authorities, just like a company manager. The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on. How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her. Now, let's see how Islam teaches how to beat your wife. Let's imagine that Nayef here... Nayef is obviously a boy, but let's imagine that he is the wife. How should a husband beat his wife?"
"First, he must admonish her - in other words, he should advise her. Then, he should refrain from sharing a bed with her. If all of this doesn't help, we start the beating as a last resort. This is a painless beating that does not leave bruises or cause bleeding. The beating I just gave Nayef is the true gentle beating in Islam," says the sociologist.
The video has created massive outrage online and has gotten over 7 lakh views. Comments to the video have been disabled.
