I'd like you to quote my comment which was sexistNo, I said your COMMENT was sexist.
Qur'an/hadith are quite clear on the matter so I can be confident in my answer and be proud that islam provides the right answer.......how you calmly and proudly responded justifying the striking of a woman.
It is also the sunnah of the prophet(pbuh) to marry more than four wives, but we have to look at qur'an in the light of both sunnah and hadith. Not ignore hadith because we don't like what it says.1. It is the Sunnah of the Messenger to NEVER hit the wife....................
A LAST RESORT for EXTREME..............
About being the last resort, like I said it's part of a process to discipline the wife, RATHER than a random slap when one feels like it.
from this you seem to be suggesting we should take the modern women as equal witnesses, but then you conclude that officially 2 vs 1 is ok. Two seem to contradict. Is islam doing injustice to these women who are "involved" and "educated" but still only count as half the witness of even an illiterate/uneducated man?Women have only now become VERY involved in business, economical affairs ..........................It has nothing to do with 2 women = 1 man. Because in many many verses God says "Men and women..." clearly showing there equality in God's eyes. These 2 for 1 is in wordily official cases.
Qur'an in this very verse 4:34 says that men ARE the gurdians of women, NOT "could be" NOT "should be", so reflect on that.BUT AGAIN IT IS NOT OBLIGATORY FOR THE MAN TO BE "IN CHARGE",
You yourself are pointing to the sunnah of the prophet when it suits you, SO in this case what was the sunnah of the prophet in terms of who should be in charge?
If any muslim gets a wife who is even a fraction of the caliber of the wives of the prophet, he wouldn't need to dare touch her. So this argument is weak here........So in this regard i say to EVERY man follow the Messenger and stay away from EVER striking your wife, inshAllah. No more than that. ...
So here you accept the islamic stance that i'm trying to emphasise. But you still argue against it, from this I conclude your reason for involvement in this thread can't be islamiclaly influenced, rather to justify what the western kuffar have you believe about the "rights" of women. You clearly know what Islam says and clearly know i'm only paraphrasing the accepted opinions.When the above Qur’an-verse authorizing the beating of a refractory wife was revealed, the Prophet is reported to have said: "I wanted one thing, but God has willed another thing - and what God has willed must be best" (see Manar V, 74).
I'm also worried about your leaning on this issue especially as it stinks of shirk, especially because you yourself are saying " and what God has willed must be best" yet you refuse it and lean towards what "the heart of the prophet said"
Answer these two questions to see where you stand:
1.Did the prophet (pbuh) accept Allah's ruling on the " beating of a refractory wife"?
2.Do YOU accept Allah's ruling on the " beating of a refractory wife"?
Allah and his Prophet(pbuh) know better
