David Wood and Sam Shamoun, ABN: Treatment of Women in Quran 4:34
According to Surah 4, Verse 34 of the Qur'an, Muslim men can beat their rebellious wives into submission. Indeed, men who simply FEAR rebellion from their wives can beat their wives. The verse reads:
Qur'an 4:34—Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.
Is it any surprise that spousal abuse is so common in Muslim majority countries?
