Egyptian Cleric Nabil Al-Mursi: Wife Beating in Islam Meant to Discipline, Not Punish or Humiliate

Egyptian cleric Nabil Al-Mursi, interviewed on the Egyptian Al-Rahma TV channel, said that the Prophet Muhammad had defined the steps to disciplining one's wife: "Do not beat her in the face, do not make her ugly, and when you leave the conjugal bed, stay inside the house!" Stressing that this was intended for disciplinary purposes only, he promised: "If you follow this method when your wife is disobedient, you will surely resolve the issue to the satisfaction of both sides."
