As-salamu alaykum brothers and sisters in Islam. First of all, thank you for your wonderful site. May God bless you, insha’ Allah. I’d like some explanation of surat 4, verse 34, and also the part that means “beat them (lightly).” Does the Quran allow us to beat women? Please, I’d like to know more about it. Thank you very much. As-salamu `alaykum. The verse in question, says what means: (… As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them [first]. [Next], refuse to share their beds, [And last] beat them [lightly]; but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, Great [Above you all].) (Surat An-Nisaa’ 4:34)
