A video has gone viral showing an Islamic cleric, Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating to Muslim men on how to beat their wives. The video uploaded on his Al-Mojtama YouTube channel, reportedly shows him teaching men how to ‘punish’ their wives under Islamic law. Using a young boy to show the techniques to be used facing the camera, he explained that ‘Some people punch her or slap her on the face… That’s not allowed.’
According to the cleric The Prophet Mohamed forbids striking the face. Al-Ansari further narrates in the short video that he believes the beating should be light and painless and it should make the woman ‘feel the strength of her husband’.
The cleric claims its harmless beating that does not leave bruises or cause bleeding and can best be described as a gentle beating in Islam. Watch the video below of him slapping the child on his shoulders and shouting at him from nearby: ‘I told you not to leave the house! How many times do I have to tell you?’
