The Prophet (s.a.w.) Never Beat His Wives

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

It must be reiterated that the Prophet (s.a.w.) never hit his wives.  He never even raised his voice.  So how can it be part of shari’ah that hitting women is acceptable?

  1. Because the Quran sanctions it in at least one situation.

    1. That is debatable. We both know that "dharaba'" has a variety of meanings, and I see no reason to follow the interpretation that it specifically means to beat the wife, since then, we fall into the ridiculous situation where we have village mullahs discussing the length of the miswak, and how hard to hit.

      Islam has to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. We should not be beholden to the primitive ideas of another age. Whilst we do not doubt their piety and scholarship, we should not adopt their ideas wholesale.
