from Washington Times:

"First, the husband should try to verbally correct her, the cleric said, MEMRI reported. If that doesn’t work, he should then move to a different bed. Only after that, should the man beat her, he said, MEMRI reported.

"But even then, there are rules that must be followed.

"'At the end ... Allah says:'Sleep in beds apart, and beat them.'... When it comes to beating, he should never beat her harshly. He should never raise his hand. He should never beat her on her face. But he can use something very simple — like a siwak [dental stick] or something like this pen. The beating should not lead to breaking her arm or a tooth,' the cleric said, MEMRI reported.'He should avoid this because the prophet urged us and told us that when you beat someone, you should never beat him or her on his or her face. This is because the face is owned by Allah.'"

What about the rest of her body?

No it's not. Violence against women is never justifiable, nor is it a joking matter. That you would make such a stupid comment shows your level of immaturity and foolishness. It's too bad that muslim men never grow up.

No beating but love!

If you want to win her heart,love her to the bone,
any time all the times,be very romantic,use the most beautiful words,show her that you love her in your deeds. No beating but love,show her how important she is in your life, praise and commend whatever she does in the house,show her your respect,listen to her,praise her test in choosing her dresses,her perfumes, praise her family for raising her the way she is,if she erred,forgive her. Give her small gifts, on different occasions,show her that you're not only her husband but her lover,take her our for lunch or dinner when she feels bored at the house.
Check yourself,may be you're the problem causing her to dislike you,and then work together to resolve any problem she faces,as you're two souls in one body.. then come and tell us how she really changed..

The point is that this is the 580th muslim cleric in the last 10 years to say this.

You cannot claim he is just one lone idiot who misunderstands Islam.

They have all been consistant. You can beat a woman so long as you dont touch her face.

Those 580 uslim clerics are trained in Islamic law. The muslims in this thread are not.

You have to explain to us why muslim clerics say the same thing. "You can beat a woman so long as you don't hit the face."

It is only the muslims who are not clerics who deny this.

The clerics agree with it.

why do you people insist on the word "beating" rather than mild strike ,not on the face, or love strike,on the cheeks?
This is one of the options,man has,to readjust wife' behavior.(I like to say, strike her with your love).

No husband should ever believe he has the authority to 'readjust' his wife's behavior. And the same goes for the wife.

The idiocy of marrying someone before they even know them is part of the reason anyone would find themselves in such a predicament.

True love between lovers is accepting their spouse for who they are. Not the tyranny of Muslim men who feel it necessary for their wives to conform to their personal standards.
