I am catching up with posting online my articles.
This is the continuation of the previous article:
Let's have a look at point 2 about the Muslims beating their wives. I saw it once on the street and then I have also heard about it few times. But now - when I write this article and I try to find out what is real and what the ideas are made within our mind about the Muslims - I have actually checked it on internet and here are few quotes about the wife-beating:
Bukhari (72:715) - A woman came to Muhammad and begged her to stop her husband from beating her. Her skin was bruised so badly that she 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.*
Abu Dawud (2142) - "The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife." *
Does Islam permit a man to hit his wife?
Yes, but only if she doesn't do as he asks. The beating must cease if the woman complies with her husband's demands. Beating is also intended to be the last resort of coercing submission, behind verbal abuse and abandonment.*
*What does the Religion of Peace Teach About... Wife-Beating
Thus what I saw and what I heard about it is true. And thus this indeed could be an issue when it comes to Syrian and other refugees from Middle East as they will continue with this behaviour and attitude towards women in Europe.
Obviously this is something now allowed by law within Europe and man beating women are severely punished in most of the European countries. But will the European law be able to keep under control the Muslim males who believe in something that it is their right given from their God ?
I doubt it.
But then when we are talking about the wife-beating by the Muslims it would be necessary to mention here that the violence committed by men against the women is not something seen exclusively within the Islam world. This is a serious problem also in the Western culture.
Thus why are we judging the Muslims about the wife-beating if we do the same ???!!!
And then we also have to mention about the violence and abuse committed by women against men. The thing with men beating women is widely known. But the opposite scenario is also existent. The only thing is that it is kind of hidden from our eyes as nobody really talks about it in the public media etc. and men themselves do not want to admit is so openly. Women in the Western culture abuse men frequently. This is a serious problem. So I say again:
Why are we so judgmental about the Muslims if we do the same shit here in Europe ?!
We will not stop the violence against women ( or men ) in Europe by blocking and not allowing the Muslims to enter Europe with their barbarian concept about treating women as less and beating them to get them do what the man wants. The problem with wife/women beating by their husband ( and then also vice versa ) lies within us and this it is needs to be corrected within us.
So don't be afraid of the Muslims beating their wives. You should be afraid of yourself because if you do not change yourself and your ideas about it then you will create a situation in your life when somebody will beat you. And it does not have to be Muslim.
