A sociologist from Qatar named Abd Al Aziz Al-Khazraj has received backlash from all over the world after he posted a video on YouTube teaching men how to beat their wives. In the video, he gave demonstration and instruction about how to beat the wife in an Islamic permissible way. The video caused outrage among the netizens and slammed the sociologist for treating women in such a way.
In the video, he says that it is not necessary to beat the wife frequently but a man should exercise his authority and discipline his wife out of love so that life can move on. He further said that the beating should be light and painless and should make the woman feel her femininity and husband’s masculinity.
He goes on to demonstrate the beating on a boy, who might be his son by slapping on his shoulders, grabbing him and shaking him. He also goes on to raise his volume and shout, “told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?”
He also says that punching the nose, slapping the face and hitting the head is prohibited in Islam and hence beating is for discipline.

In the video, he goes on to say, “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.”
The video has received over six lakh views and due to the brutal slamming, the comments section has been disabled.
