“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4)
There is, of course, domestic violence in all cultures. So to post this is just “Islamophobic,” right? Wrong: there is domestic violence in all cultures, but only in one does it have divine sanction. Islam doesn’t teach that man may kill his wife, but once you’ve allowed him to beat her, accidents will happen.
The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad’s child bride, Aisha, says in a hadith that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: ‘Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?’” — Sahih Muslim 2127
An another hadith states: “Rifa`a divorced his wife whereupon `AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. `Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Messenger came, Aisha said, ‘I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!’” — Sahih Bukhari 7.77.5825
“Man Accused of Decapitating Woman Inside Northeast Philadelphia Home,” by Christine Mattson, Cydney Long, David Chang and Leah Uko, NBC Philadelphia, November 29, 2022:
A man is accused of decapitating a woman inside a Northeast Philadelphia home.
Ahmad Shareef, 34, was arrested Tuesday and charged with murder, possession of an instrument of crime and abuse of corpse.
Police responded to a home along the 300 block of Magee Avenue around 12:45 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a 911 call. When they arrived they found the body of a 41-year-old woman with a severed head on the kitchen floor.
“Upon arrival, we found a witness as well as a victim laying on the floor inside,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Michael McCarrick said. “As a result of discussion with the witness, we identified a person of interest who has subsequently been detained.”…
“The woman…they treat her like a slave,” Nyjha Richardson, a neighbor, told NBC10. “She runs in and out of the house barefoot. She really never goes anywhere else. She carries all of their bags in. They scream at her.”…
Richardson said she had witnessed several problems at the home in the past, including Shareef running outside half naked and threatening neighbors to the point in which one family moved away.
“There’s always fights,” Richardson said. “Always quarrels. People in and out of the house constantly. It’s never good. The yellow house is the worst house on the block!”
