A Muslim sociologist from Qatar recently made headlines after he uploaded a tutorial video teaching Muslim men how to discipline their wives.
Abd Al Aziz Al-Khazraj posted the video on his YouTube channel and in it, he instructs Muslim men on "how to be the leader of the house" and "how he might feel the need to discipline his wife."
The video begins with him saying, "Dear viewers, many people — especially people who are married - would like to know how to beat one's wife. Is beating your wife necessary? Must a man beat his wife every day? No."
He then proceeds to talk about how a man beats his woman "out of love."
"The beating should be light. The husband must make his wife feel the femininity and her husband's masculinity."
"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."
"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," Al-Khazraj states.
