Q&A Booklet: Are Muslim Men Allow to Beat Their Wives?

Wife- battering is now increasingly recognised as a serious social problem in Malaysia affecting the well-being, physical security and health of women, children and families. More battered women are turning to friends, relatives, counsellors, women's organisations, shelters, lawyers and the Religous Department for help.

There are a number of views being expressed on what the Qu'ran says about a husband beating his wife. This booklet puts forward the perspective of the group, Sisters in Islam, based on its understanding of the Qu'ran. It is hoped that the booklet will be of value for Muslim women and men who are concerned about the issue, both those directly affected by wife- battering and those who are in a position to help.
