Answering Christianity writes:
1- Wife beating is not allowed in Islam!
Wife beating anytime and for any reason is never allowed in Islam. There is however a questionable condition where Allah Almighty seems to allow the husband to beat his wife, and that is after he gives her two warnings to stop showing ill-conduct and disloyalty.
2- Noble Verses and Sayings that support the prohibition of any type of wife beating:
3- The Prophet forbade striking on the face:
4- What about the saying about striking the wife lightly on her hand with a siwak?
There is not a single Saying or Noble Verse from Prophet Muhammad or the Noble Quran respectively that mentions any such beating.
5- More proofs about the translation of Noble Verse 4:34:
According to the Noble Quran and the Sayings of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him above, wife beating in Islam is definetly prohibited, possibly even in the case where the wife fails after she was warned twice for her ill-conduct and disloyalty.
I have always heard that disciplinary beating is allowed in Islam. But it says the contrary. Is it valid?
