Abbas’ advisor: A man is permitted to beat his wife when she is disobedient
Supreme Shari’ah Judge, PA Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: In this noble verse Allah spoke about one situation in a woman's behavior… “As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly)” [Quran]… The meaning is that the noble Quran and Allah permitted this gradualness in dealing with wrong behavior by the woman... The man who is intended here is not only a husband. When Allah said: “Admonish them,” it can be the husband, the father, the brother. It can be the society or the ruling authority... “And beat them” – this too is not necessarily especially for the husband. In principle, do we recognize harmless beating, educational beating, as a means of education? … Prophet [Muhammad] said… “Command them to pray when they are at the age of seven, and beat them for this when they are 10 years old” [Hadith]. The beating here is an educational beating, and not violent beating. … There is merciful beating… As long as Allah permitted a certain type of beating, it is for the good. It is good for society and good for the woman and the man. However, regarding the question of why Islam permitted a man to hit and not a woman: Look, the woman is more sensitive, and this is a kind of preference for her by the way... You, the man, even if you were beaten, will repeat [the behavior] over and over because the man, let's put it this way, his sensitivity is tougher than that of the woman. However, the woman can be affected by anything. In addition, in general, beating is permitted against the man and against the woman. ‘The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse - lash each one of them with a hundred lashes’ [Quran]… Every man who beats his wife, his sister, or his daughter for no reason, he is committing a forbidden act… [If] he beats her only because he is angry at her, this is forbidden…The one and only situation, which is very limited and very rare, in which a man is permitted to beat in a way that doesn’t harm, doesn’t injure, avoids the face, and doesn’t cause strong pain – is the situation of disobedience. Only a situation of the woman’s disobedience. The disobedient woman, the woman who is out of line, the woman who destroys the bonds of marriage, and the bonds of home and family. Aside from this, any type of beating, injuring, and cursing of the woman constitutes a forbidden act. The man must know that the woman is not his handmaid and not his servant. She is his partner."
