The Prohibition of Domestic Violence in Islam :[A5+] Slim Paperback - 46 pages,by Shaykh Hisham Kabbani &Dr. Homayra Ziad, Ph.D.Description :In fifteen centuries, Islam has never sanctioned any form of family violence. How then did this scourge become widespread in the Muslim community? As in other religions, Islamic law forbids such practices has been systematically decontextualised by patriarchal scholars whose dogma dismisses the socially inclusive, inalienable rights bestowed upon women by Islam.To remain relevant to the human experience, legal rulings must adapt ot changing social norms while upholding the core Qur’anic values of mercy and justice. To eradicate family violence, it is time for Muslim scholars to stop blindly following literalist interpretations of Islamic texts and strive for novel interpretations that are based on classical methodologies. This is not thinking outside the box; rather, it is extending the boundaries of the box in which Muslims think. This fatwa is an effort to generate sustainable social change among Muslims and to help others better understand and address Islam’s prohibition of domestic violence.This "fatwa," religious edict, is issued by two renowned Islamic scholars and is founded on traditional Islamic texts which clearly state domestic violence is forbidden. It presents shining social examples set forth by the revered Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and examines crucial Arabic terminology relative to domestic violence that has been broadly misinterpreted. This booklet is an authentic refutation of domestic abuse perpetrated by Muslims and is a resource for social scientists, religious scholars, policymakers, lawmakers, law enforcement, educators, and advocates for victims of domestic violence.Table of Contents :---About the Publisher,---About the Author's,---Publishers Notes,--- Introduction - Are Muslim men allowed to beat their Wives?------Qur'an and Hadith : Founts of Guidance,------Our Approach.--- Interpreting the Holy Qur'an,-------The Socio-historical Context of Revelation,-------Verse 4:34 in the Context of Broader Qur'anic Humanism.--- A Linguistic Exploration of the Word 'Daraba'-------Interpreting the Qur'an through the Qur'an,-------Ten Qur'anic Meanings of 'Daraba'-------Other Interpretations.--- The Importance of Prophet Muhammad's, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, Example-------Prophet Muhammad's, may Allah bless him & grant him peace, High Regard for Women,--- Conclusion.---Appendix :-------Verses that Use the Verb 'Daraba'---Glossary of Islamic Terms.
