“Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them (Quran 4:34)
“And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath (Quran 38:44) –
“A woman came to Muhammad and begged him to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that it is described as being “greener” than the green veil she was wearing. Muhammad did not admonish her husband, but instead ordered her to return to him and submit to his sexual desires. Sahih Bukhari (72:715)
“Muhammad struck his favorite wife, Aisha, in the chest one evening when she left the house without his permission. Aisha narrates, “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain.” Sahih Muslim (4:2127)
The Observer, July 18, 2019:
Social media users in Morocco expressed fury after a video emerged of a woman with large bruises on her body who described being beaten by her husband.
The woman’s eyes appeared heavily swollen and she had deep purple bruises on her thigh and torso, as seen in a video posted on Facebook on July 7. It has since been viewed nearly 850,000 times.
The woman said her husband attacked her after she questioned his late return home. “I asked him, ‘Why are you coming home late?’ He answered, ‘Why does it matter to you?’ And he beat me,” she explained in the video, filmed by a passer-by.
The woman said she went to the police but was rebuffed. “They didn’t even let me in,” she said. “My husband also took the children from me.”
Online users, outraged at the violence the woman had been subjected to, demanded a response from authorities.
The two Facebook users who posted the video did not respond to a request for comment.
Local police opened an investigation and said the woman had in fact met with officers and filed a complaint, the Moroccan newspaper Tel Quel reported.
More than half of women in Morocco say they have been victims of violence, according to a May report from the Ministry of Family, Solidarity, Equality and Development.
In September, Morocco criminalized sexual harassment and toughened sentencing for perpetrators of domestic violence. But activists criticized the law for not going far enough to protect women.
