Against the background of the already difficult situation of women in Muslim countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, there began one by one, the book on "Islamic etiquette." They, among other things, told how and when men should beat their wives, according to Esquire.
Thus, the author of the book "Women in Islam" Mohamed Kamal Mustafa believes that a woman is beaten with a switch (not too thick), as the strikes have to bring it in the first place, "not physical, but spiritual suffering." The author recommends that men "to strike the sensitive parts of the body: face, chest, abdomen, head, and so on."
However, an expert on family relationships Dr. Ghazi Al-Shimari from Saudi Arabia did not agree with my colleague. He writes that he beat a woman's face should not be in any case, and themselves to be a gentle strokes and soft. In addition, according to Al-Shimari, the husband should certainly warn his wife about how many punches he's going to strike her. Psychologists believe that in some cases, a woman can "teach" a toothbrush or similar small items, but absolutely do not approve hitting a plate, a knife or a bottle of water.
George Bousquet, who wrote the book "Sex Etiquette in Islam", believes that by beating a woman is not to cause injury to yourself. Therefore, the "thin woman is a stick to beat the full — open palm, and strong — with his fist."
The authors of the weekly program "Sharia and Life" on the channel "Al Jazeera" believe that physical violence for education is not every woman, but only that which "takes this process is normal." If the wife feels humiliated during corporal punishment, it is not necessary to beat her, considered the creator of the transfer.
Finally, the author of the book "On the subordination of women in Islam" Hassan Asha articulates the cases in which a man is to dismiss his hands. Such a method of influence on his wife say if she refuses to smarten up before meeting her husband, does not want to satisfy his sexual needs, neglects her religious duties without permission leaves the house.
It should be noted that not all Muslims are in agreement with the authors of books on the role of women in Islam. Many believers are called like the brochure "defaming Islam agitation", saying that in fact are much more respectful of women than other religions.
