If person gives 1,200 riyals (320 dollars) to his wife and she spends 900 riyals (240 dollars) to purchase an abaya from a brand shop, and if her husband slaps her on the face as a reaction to her action, she deserves that punishment,” Saudi Judge.
Surprisingly domestic violence is a rapidly growing problem of Islamic countries, though Quran clearly denies any sort of violence on women in anyway however our learned scholars through different interpretations have finally drawn conclusion to beat wife. I won’t say those men of our society take their wives as their property since nobody damages his property but more than that, i.e. animals.
I acknowledge in some cases wives are not innocent either but beating is not a solution at all. Dialogue is the only way to settle domestic issues and if in case things go beyond dialogue we can always have an option to discontinue relationship legally. When the process of marriage takes place through negotiations then what on earth makes men allow settling rest of the issues through violence.
Those who bring religious justifications to beat their wives should think on humanitarian lines as well, sometimes we don’t have to believe in each and everything just because some scholar feel that their women should be treated like that, with due respect I would suggest that Saudi Judge to stop portraying false image of Islam and avoid mixing culture with religion.
On the other hand women should also try to understand the psyche of their men and understand the fact that their husbands do their level best to provide them a good life however wives should be aware of their rights and become vocal against domestic violence, if they think they are being treated unjustly they should take the issue to maximum level and realize their respect. There must not be any compromise on self respect.//
