Mauritanian Scholar Sheikh Muhammad Ould Dedew Explains Wife Beating in Islam: "Three Blows with the Hand on the Back"
In the seventh chapter of his Ramadhan religious consultation show, Mauritanian scholar Sheikh Muhammad Ould Dedew was asked whether a husband may "discipline" his wife by beating her.
Sheikh Dedew answered in the affirmative and explained how and when a man may beat his wife and children.
He said that the beating should be a man’s last resort, and he must avoid hitting his wife’s face or beating her in a fit of anger.
Sheikh Dedew explained that the man should beat his wife three times with his hand on her back, and not use a whip.
The chapter, dedicated to the subject of marriage, was posted on Sheikh’s Dedew’s YouTube channel on June 24.
