    No, you tap her. The tap signifies that after that comes divorce. It's only done as a last resort.

    Islam is what it is? there are at least 100 interpretations of each and every passage....

    Do you live Islam as if it was revealed in the 7th century?

    To put this in context we are talking about the abuse and harassment of women.

    No. In any discussion everything is relative and we can introduce other examples to referance what we are talking about. Or do you want to frame discussions in a straitjacket that delivers the "Muslims bad" all rest "good". I am not fan of mullahs. But I am not fan of those who bash Islam just to score points either.

    I like to that although I really like it if it comes from pretty girls. As I assume your not a girl or pretty so I will pass that.

    A stupid post in cybespace with a unkown person does "maketh a day". Certainly not in my thinking. Gawd help you if it does in yours.

    “Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.[To Hindu priests complaining to him about the prohibition of Sati religious funeral practice of burning widows alive on her husband’s funeral pyre.]”

    Hi,

    That preacher should be executed for inciting restlessness against the state---.

    And let;s make this clear. No human being has right to inflict physical hurt, harm on another human being. Period. The notion that a person by virtue of being male is entitled to hit another person [female] is primitive and cannot be sustained in any civilized society in our age.

    Didn't say otherwise. However don't have any doubt in my mind India would have banned it even if the British hadn't, as India banned much less oppressive practices than sati like child marriage, dowry, polygamy etc. for Hindus.

    Totally agree

    As I have got older I have matured and reconsidered my thoughts. One of things I have really changed on is corporal punishment. I don't even think society has that right. The greatest expression of humanity is refraining from the animalistic impulses we have. I therefore now oppose death penalty. If you murdered me I would prefer they would not hang you. Give you a life term in prison is fine by me.

    As regards men having right to hit women anywhere let alone in a marriage is utterly unacceptable and marker of primitivness in our world today. Which one of you would accept their daughters, sisters being hit by their husbands on any pretext? If a wife is bad walk away. That of course applies with equal weight the other way as well.

    Actually, Mughals and other Muslim Kingdoms also restricted/banned it.

    I'm against hitting kids or women, lightly or with any kind of force. It is not about animalistic tendencies but more about justice and fair play with me. Don't hit someone just because they are weaker than you and cannot inflict the same physical pain back that you can on them.

    Regarding capital punishment I'm on the fence, as in a truly horrendous crime can merit it for two reasons. First to satisfy a sense of justice for the victim or the victim's family. And second to act as a deterrent against horrendous crimes. Kind of like acting for the greater good. Even tho the studies regarding a correlation between capital punishment and deterrence are fairly controversial at best, still it feels kinda logical.

    The US spends 182 billion dollars on incarceration.

    I don't think criminals should be awarded with food, shelter, free medical services, and all other perks, especially at the expense of the innocent who have to spend hundreds of dollars a year in taxes to fund these expenses. Please note, most of these criminals go back to crime shortly after they are released.

    Wa Alykum Salam!!!

    Whether intimacy is intended or not, the marriage is a contract and should be signed by adults only (biological puberty, not some stupid number).

    There was no reference point to be made to a straightforward statement made by the fellow I asked the question. you wanted to be too cute by half and make it about other religions.

    Too cute by half is a colloquial phrase has zero to do with girls.

    I get it- you are whataboutery. I'm done. Thanks
