A LEADING academic and cleric from World Cup host country Qatar has filmed a shocking guide on how Muslim men should beat their wives.
The vile video features Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating how to “punish” a woman in accordance with Islamic law.
In a further sick move, the sociologist used a school-age boy called Nayef to show how to deliver beatings “out of love” – so a woman can feel a “man’s strength”.
And he disgustingly said that some women enjoyed being married to “violent and powerful husbands”.
But he warned: “Some people punch her or slap her on the face… That’s not allowed.”
Al-Ansari uploaded the sick footage to the Al-Mojtama YouTube channel.
‘LIGHT AND PAINLESS’
In the guide he says: “The Prophet Muhammad… Look how merciful Islam is. The Prophet forbade striking the face. He forbade men from beating their wives on the face. Slapping the face, hitting the head, punching the nose – all of this is prohibited. The beating is for discipline.”
World cup organisers FIFA are already under-fire for allowing the 2022 tournament to be held in a country where homosexuality is illegal.
The video is a stark reminder about how women are treated in the strict Muslim nation.
Al-Ansari begins the 3.30 tutorial by saying that the beating should be light and painless, and that it should make the wife feel her husband’s masculinity and strength, as well as her own femininity.
Al-Ansari then demonstrated how to beat a wife on Nayef by slapping him on the shoulders, grabbing him and shaking him, and saying loudly: “I told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?”
He said: “Dear viewers, many people – especially people who are married – would like to know how to beat one’s wife. Is beating your wife necessary? Must a man beat his wife every day? No.
“First, we must understand that the man is the leader of the house. A leader has authorities, just like a company manager.
“The leader of the house may decide to discipline the wife so life can move on. How does a husband beat his wife? He gives her a disciplinary beating out of love. He loves her.
“Now, let’s see how Islam teaches how to beat your wife. Let’s imagine that Nayef here… Nayef is obviously a boy, but let’s imagine that he is the wife. How should a husband beat his wife?
“First, he must admonish her – in other words, he should advise her. Then, he should refrain from sharing a bed with her. If all of this doesn’t help, we start the beating as a last resort.
“This is a painless beating that does not leave bruises or cause bleeding. The beating I just gave Nayef is the true gentle beating in Islam.”
