Since 1933, when Standard Oil of California (now Chevron) won a concession to explore in eastern Saudi Arabia and discovered oil in 1938, the United States and Saudi Arabia have forged a close bond.
In spite of the fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers during the attacks on 9/11 were allegedly from Saudi Arabia, remarkably enough, the two countries remained friends. In spite of their murderous track record of using US bombs to lay waste to innocent women and children, the United States and Saudi Arabia have not parted ways.
The Saudis have proven that they can behead people for free speech, invade and lay waste to other countries, and even fund terrorism around the world, and yet the United States government continues to bow down to the incendiary regime.
How many times have we heard the reason the United States invades other countries is to save the citizens from their fascist regimes which oppress their people?
Lybia, Syria, Iraq, and more, have all been invaded, and destroyed as the United States pretends to be the police of the world — yet not even once has an establishment politician called for invading or even questioned the horrid atrocities carried out against the people of Saudi Arabia by their rulers. We hear all about the deplorable and violent beheadings by the Islamic State, but when it comes to the Saudis, who beheaded far more people than ISIS last year, the United States remains mum.
So, when the Saudi state-run media releases an instructional video on how to properly beat your wife, it should come as no surprise as to why the US establishment refuses to even acknowledge it.
The video below was recorded in February but was released this week via the Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute. Its contents are nothing short of infuriating.
The video features a Saudi doctor, Khaled Al-Saqaby, who deals with the often ‘thorny’ issue of how and when to beat your wife. Al-Saqaby begins the video by telling husbands not to immediately attack their wives, but to discipline them properly first.
When speaking of how women some women say they would like to be treated with equality, Al-Saqaby called this a “very grave problem.”
He says, “The first step is to remind her of your rights and of her duties according to Allah. Then comes the second step – forsaking her in bed.”
The third step, beating, has to correspond with the “necessary Islamic conditions” before taking action.
“The beating should not be performed with a rod, nor should it be a headband, or a sharp object.”
Instead, husbands should use a ‘tooth-cleaning twig or with a handkerchief’ to beat their wife.
Hopefully then, the wife will “feel that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.”
At the end of the video, Al-Saqaby lets the wife-beating husbands of Saudi Arabia that sometimes, you may have to dole out an extra beating outside of the world of just discipline. Sometimes, according to this sicko ‘doctor,’ they just deserve to be beat.
Al-Saqaby says, “In addition, sometimes a woman makes a mistake that may lead her husband to beat her.
“I’m sad to say there are some women who say ‘Go ahead, If you are a real man, beat me’ She provokes them.”
Below is a video which is representative of a strong US ally. An ally who has not only terrorized the world, as well as their own people but who has shown they wield power over America by blackmailing the government for attempting to tell the truth.
The man in the video below represents the regime that US President Barack Obama just flew down to curtsey to, just last week.
It is important to note that there are many people out there who will implicate all of Islam in this type of behavior. Those people will even use a handful of quotes from the Quran which they say condones the beating of women. To those people who use a few quotes from the Quran to smear an entire religion, the same thing can be done with the bible, as it also condones beating one’s wife, as it says she is your property.
As with all religion — its context can be used to create peace or foster hatred and war.
Below are just some of the Noble Verses and Sayings in the Quran that support the prohibition of any type of wife beating:
The following Noble Verses and Sayings from the Noble Quran and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him respectively seem to very well support the above interpretation:
“…Do not retain them (i.e., your wives) to harm them…(The Noble Quran, 2:231)”
Narrated Mu’awiyah al-Qushayri: “I went to the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) and asked him: What do you say (command) about our wives? He replied: Give them food what you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and do not beat them, and do not revile them. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2139)”
Narrated Mu’awiyah ibn Haydah: “I said: Apostle of Allah, how should we approach our wives and how should we leave them? He replied: Approach your tilth when or how you will, give her (your wife) food when you take food, clothe when you clothe yourself, do not revile her face, and do not beat her. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 11, Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Number 2138)”
Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) as saying: “He who believes in Allah and the Hereafter, if he witnesses any matter he should talk in good terms about it or keep quiet. Act kindly towards woman, for woman is created from a rib, and the most crooked part of the rib is its top. If you attempt to straighten it, you will break it, and if you leave it, its crookedness will remain there. So act kindly towards women. (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Marriage (Kitab Al-Nikah), Book 008, Number 3468)”
“O ye who believe! Ye are forbidden to inherit women against their will. Nor should ye treat them with harshness, that ye may take away part of the dower [money given by the husband to the wife for the marriage contract] ye have given them, except where they have been guilty of open lewdness; on the contrary live with them on a footing of kindness and equity. If ye take a dislike to them it may be that ye dislike a thing, and God brings about through it a great deal of good. (The Noble Quran, 4:19)”
“And among God’s signs is this: He created for you mates from amongst yourselves (males as mates for females and vice versa) that you might find tranquillity and peace in them. And he has put love and kindness among you. Herein surely are signs for those who reflect. (The Noble Quran 30:21)”
“Women impure for men impure. And women of purity for men of purity. These are not affected by what people say. For them is forgiveness and an honorable provision. (The Noble Quran 24:26)”
Narrated Abu Huraira: “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab), Volume 8, Book 73, Number 135)”
Narrated Abu Huraira: “A man said to the Prophet , ‘Advise me! ‘The Prophet said, ‘Do not become angry and furious.’ The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet said in each case, ‘Do not become angry and furious.’ (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab), Volume 8, Book 73, Number 137)”
Abu Huraira reported: “I heard Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: One is not strong because of one’s wrestling skillfully. They said: Allah’s Messenger, then who is strong? He said: He who controls his anger when he is in a fit of rage. (Translation of Sahih Muslim, The Book of Virtue, Good Manners and Joining of the Ties of Relationship (Kitab Al-Birr was-Salat-I-wa’l-Adab), Book 032, Number 6314)”
Allah Almighty loves those who restrain anger: “Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity, or in adversity; who restrain anger, and pardon (all) men; for Allah loves those who do good. (The Noble Quran, 3:134)”
