ICNA Condones (Recommends?) Wife Beating

In my travels of the Interwebs I found a book list for the Youth division of ICNA, the Islamic Circle of North America. Of course, ICNA is one of the groups on the secret 1991 MB memorandum. They're also behind the "Why Islam" posters. And Siraj Wahhaj, idol of the new Ground Zero Mosque imam, is a frequent speaker at the annual ICNA convention: listed first here:


Anyway, the book list is here: http://www.ymsite.com/books.php

I found out about it from a Steve Emerson article from last year here.

…….the recommended reading list for ICNA's youth organization for boys, called "Young Muslims," shows the opposite. The book list includes numerous works by authors such as the Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan Al-Banna, current spiritual leader Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, and Jamaat-e-Islami founder Abul 'Ala Maududi. These works are not countered by books or essays which offer a more passive, peaceful message.

On the list is this article: http://www.ymsite.com/books/wijct/index.htm

And it says:


For the husband whose wife's ill-conduct is threatening the marriage, the Quran gives four types of advice as detailed in the following verses:

"As to those women on whose part you fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, (1) Admonish them, (2) refuse to share their beds, (3) beat them; but if they return to obedience seek not against them means of annoyance: For Allah is Most High, Great. (4) If you fear a break between them, appoint two arbiters, one from his family and the other from hers; If they wish for peace, Allah will cause their reconciliation" (4:34-35).

The first three are to be tried first. If they fail, then the help of the families concerned should be sought.


Note no mention "beating lightly," or "beating with a toothpick."

And that beating (#3) should "be tried first," before getting the families to help!

PS Here's a page that explains that Young Muslims is a division of ICNA, at the bottom.. teach 'em while they're young! http://www.icna.org/divisions/
