Canada: Muslim Book Sanctions Wife-Beating

By Robert Spencer
The only surprising thing about ‘A Gift for the Muslim Couple’ is that it surprises anyone.

A book discovered in a Toronto Islamic bookstore is causing an Internet uproar: A Gift for the Muslim Couple by the Islamic scholar Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi advises Muslim men that “it might be necessary to restrain” their wives “with strength or even to threaten” them. It says that a Muslim wife is forbidden to leave her husband’s house “without his permission,” and that she has a responsibility to “fulfil his desires.” If she disobeys, he may “beat [her] by hand or stick” or “pull (her) by the ears,” but should “refrain from beating her excessively.” The only surprising thing about all this is that this book surprises anyone.

    And I remember when Gloria Steinem raised a fuss over the Bible’s scripture that women are to submit to their husbands back in the 70s…where is her organization, NOW, at in the public arena to denounce sharia? Crickets…

    Wife beatings are part of Sharia law, which is what Ontario was asked to approve of in 2005, by allowing the establishment of Sharia law ‘courts’. So why would Muslims and their organisations say that one of the essential elements of Sharia law is contrary to their religion and way of life?
    The answer is very likely “Taqqiya”, or deliberate deception (look it up). For “Taqqiya” to be practised there must be an element of “threat, persecution, or compulsion”, and the threat here is quite clearly that the majority-Christian host country, Canada, regards wife-beating as illegal, and Canadians have no liking or sympathy for those who assault their wives in order to exercise control over them. Thus the realities of the Muslim religion must be concealed from us until such time as their numbers enable Muslims to practice their religion openly and without fear of negative consequences.
    And if Muslims ever manage to achieve that, then the rest of us will be in imminent danger of “dhimmitude”, which is described as “an attitude of concession, surrender and appeasement towards Islamic demands”. The Arabic language adjective dhimmi literally means “protected” and refers to “a non-Muslim subject of a Sharia law state”.
    There are many things about the Muslim religion that I dislike, and the willingness of its adherents to lie and deceive in order to spread Islam and conquer the “unbelievers” is one of them.
