Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj shared the video to his Al-Mojtama YouTube channel where he offered guidance for men on how to beat their wives under Islamic law.
‘Some people punch her or slap her on the face… That’s not allowed. The Prophet Muhammad… Look how merciful Islam is’ he says in the video.
‘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.’
‘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.’
‘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.’
The video was condemned online. Even Muslims condemned his video as there’s no such thing in Islam. Muslims criticized him for ruining the image of Islam and for providing wrong information.
One wrote: ‘This is pure propaganda against Islam.. Trying to Ruin the image of Islam’ while another said: ‘This video seems like a whitewash propaganda video.’
