First, the man tries the verbal approach. He admonishes his wife and that fails to bring her into submission. Second, he has stopped sleeping with her and she still refuses to obey. Dealing with her rebellion requires a more severe step. The only contextual conclusion that can be drawn is one of physical punishment, i.
Disobedience to the husband is the context in all of these. Re-examine Disobedience is the cause for beating the wife, not sexual immorality. An Arab Christian brother pointed out that Muhammad is referring to the men not being the best. Muhammad was criticizing the men for beating their wives excessively.
Declan Walsh in Islamabad The Guardian, Thursday June 5 Article history It started with a dead dog, escalated into a tit-for-tat tribal war, and has now reached a grotesque climax with the exchange of 15 child brides. Pakistani human rights activists are outraged at reports that a long-running blood feud in a remote corner of western Baluchistan province has been resolved by the handing over of 15 girls, aged between three and 10, for marriage.
The new government in Islamabad, led by the party of the late Benazir Bhutto, has promised to act. The orders have been given. But Jahangir said those orders had not been acted upon.
Vanni, an ancient tribal practice in which feuding clans settle their differences by exchanging women for marriage, is illegal in Pakistan. But the writ of government is weak in rural areas, and local police often turn a blind eye. The current controversy started with a row over a dog, said Muhammad Paryal Marri, a researcher in northern Sindh for the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.
A dog owned by one tribe, the Chakranis, was shot dead because it strayed too close to a well controlled by their rivals, the Qalandaris. In revenge the Chakranis shot a donkey belonging to the other side. A ferocious bout of tit-for-tat killings ensued in which 19 people, including five women, were killed.
The fighting ended in when Nawab Akbar Khan Bugti — a rebellious tribal chieftain who was later killed by the Pakistan army — brought the two sides together. Bugti ordered the Chakranis to hand over 15 child brides in compensation; at a jirga, or tribal council. Last Friday they finally agreed to make good on that promise, said Marri. Such brutal traditions have only come to light for a broader public in the past decade, thanks to activism by human rights groups and publicity from local media.
But, despite previous shows of similar anger, official action has lagged far behind. Below are 6 English versions of the Quran verse This passage lays the foundation for wife beating. I provided all these to show their similarity. These translations are all from recognized scholars. I have corrected some archaic spelling. My comments are in [ ] type brackets. Men are superior to women on account of the qualities with which God has gifted the one above the other, and on account of the outlay they make from their substance for them.
But chide those for whose refractoriness you have cause to fear; remove them into beds apart, and scourge them: but if they are obedient to you, then seek not occasion against them: verily, God is High, Great! Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them.
Surely God is high, supreme. Dawood Men are in charge of women, because Allah has 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 has guarded. As for those from whom you fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them.
Allah is ever High Exalted, Great. Pickthall Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.
If they then obey you, look not for any way against them; God is All high, All great. Arberry Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and as to those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in their sleeping places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.
Shakir Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more strength than the other, and because they support them from their means. As to those women on whom part you fear disloyalty and ill conduct, admonish them first , next , refuse to share their beds, and last beat them lightly ; but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means of annoyance for Allah is Most High, Great above you all. Muhammad placed the man over the wife; he is her custodian and she obeys him. Then the Quran proceeds to lay out their respective roles, then lists a progression of steps to be followed when dealing with a rebellious wife: 1.
The husband, as the manager, increases the pressure on his wife to bring her into obedience to him. Note that obedience to her husband is not required if he orders her to do something sinful, causes her physical pain, or something she is incapable of doing. In some cases due to the length I will only quote relevant portions of a hadith. Here is a Hadith from Bukhari, vol. Aisha said that the lady came wearing a green veil and complained to her Aisha and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating. When Abdur-Rahman heard that his wife had gone to the prophet, he came with his two sons from another wife.
She has told a lie. I am very strong and can satisfy her, but she is disobedient and wants to go back to Rifaa. But by Allah, these boys resemble him as a crow resembles a crow. The women did not commit any illegal sexual act.
Tafsir Ibn Abbas
The woman was badly bruised. Her skin was green. Aisha acknowledged that the Muslim women were suffering from being beaten more than the non-Muslim women.

She said that the Pagan women were treated better! In fact, he reproached the women for saying Rahman was impotent. Even though she was hurt Muhammad accepted her bruises and beating because to Muhammad it was not abuse. Following are a number of various Hadith relative to wife beating.
Again, I have edited several of these because of length. I objected to him, but he again said: Marry Usama; so I married him. Allah blessed there in and I was envied by others. Book , Number …So I informed him [Muhammad].

Zaid had given her the proposal of marriage. So far as Abu Jahm is concerned, he is a great beater of women, but Usama b. Zaid… She pointed with her hand that she did not approve of the idea of marrying Usama. She said: So I married him, and I became an object of envy.
Zaid as your husband. Abu Jahm was known to beat his wives and to treat them harshly. Although Muhammad may not have cared for it, wife beating was certainly allowed within the Islamic community. These hadith also illustrate that wife beating is per the discretion of the husband.
Not all Muslim husbands beat their wives as Abu Jahm. There was variation in the Muslim community and this variation existed because the husband determined when it was needed. What may be an unimportant infraction to one husband could be a great offense to another. Below are two of them. Then many women came round the family of the apostle of Allah complaining against their husbands.
NOTE: 28 Nov. Muhammad is referring to the men not being the best and criticizing them for beating their wives excessively.
