Peace, one and all…
The issue of battered Muslim women has made it into the Islamic blogosphere recently. It is a sad reality indeed, and one that needs to be addressed. A good friend of mine has addressed this topic. It has also been addressed recently by Imam Johari Malik.
Our always worthy sister Margari Aziza Hill has written an important and fiery post on this topic of late, whilst our worthy mujahid Tariq Nelson has also writen a number of posts dealing with this issue (here and here again). Umar Lee has written on the possible tragic end results of this phenomenon.
In such august company, let me add my own thoughts. Domestic violence is un-Islamic. It goes against the teachings and practice of our Prophet (alaihi al-salatu wa al-salam) and those who beat their wives should consider that anger is a sign of defeat and repent to Allah.
Allah! I repent to You for all my sins. Guide me always to the door of repentance, which leads to life for the heart and soul (in this world and the next).
