Is Wife beating acceptable in Islam?
asked Jan 25, 2013 in Islam by elizabethmadison63 (520 points)
In Islam a husband is instructed to use physical correction of a wife if all else fails.

 In Sura Al Nisa section 6 it is written

As to those women
on whose part ye fear
Disloyalty and ill conduct. admonsh them first
next refuse to share their beds
and last spank them
But if they return to obedience
seek not against them
means of annoyance
for Allah is most high
Great above you all.

I have had occasion to spank my wife several times, never without a warning, never without a good reason. She is spanked  nude with a strap my father in law grave me for just this pupose. I seldom need to use this strap, a warning most always gets her back on track in her duties as a wife.

Wife beating is not acceptable in Islam in any case. I think there is no law that allows women to be beaten up right? Women should be treated the most nicest way as I believed...  Women deserves that Islam or not... Right?

No, a good muslim who truly practices islam knows that beating ones wife is unacceptable. This is true in every religion, every culture and every country. Wife beating exists is never acceptable.

I agree that spanking is not the sam as beating, but still if wife ask her husband to beat her? Some woman feel when husband beat her she respect him more and love him more.

there are several topics and question and answers on this subject already, even a poll. Spanking is by definition not the same as beating.
