Domestic violence is not supported in islam. It is no doubt a capital offence. It is one of the things stressed by prophet Muhammad PBUH before he left this world. He made sure domestic abuse was eradicated and muslims understood their limits. No amount of anger should make someone become physical with his or her spouse. If there is home training, surely no spouse will beat his or her partner. Being a husband does not give you the right to raise up your hands and beat your wife. You have no right to do so whatsoever. Doing means crossing the limit. And if you think you are more powerful and energetic than her, then remember, Allah is even more powerful, and eventually you will get to him.
*How to respond to domestic abuse:*
⭐The very first time domestic abuse especially beating started, do not keep quiet. If you keep quiet and ignore or keep being patient. Surely, if the first was a slap, the next will be a good kick.
⭐The Moment he or she abuses you physically, do not waste time, involve your parents or guardians. Do not hide it. Hiding it means taking it to the next level.
⭐If after parents have intervened, yet, it continues, then do not waste time, quit the marriage for good before they carry you with stretchers. Do not sit and allow some one to be hitting you in front of your children or even others.
⭐Beating is an animalistic behavior. Beating is degrading. Anyone who loves and respects his or her spouse will not hit them. The moment beating starts, its a Game over. There is nothing left.
⭐If you are beaten, and you keep quiet, you are not only oppressing yourself, but you are also oppressing others who are not courageous enough to report it. When you take action, others who engage in it will fear humiliation and stop. while victims will feel stronger and come forward.
⭐The Prophet says, Strength is not when you beat or trash someone, strength is when you have the power to beat someone, but choose not to, control your emotions and remain patient. (Bukhari and Muslim)
