Stop Abuse of Women & Children

Under no circumstance does Islam allow or condone violence or abuse. In reality, everyday of a Muslim's life should be a day of activism against the abuse of women and children.

Abuse of women and children is condemned in Islam. Abusive men show complete disregard to the Islamic teachings of kindness, mercy, and compassion. They totally ignore the example of Rasulullah SAW , who never hit a woman or child and was extremely gentle and compassionate with his entire family.

The Noble Quran contains several verses extolling good treatment of women, and makes it clear that the relationship between men and women is to be one of kindness, mutual respect and caring, and not one of oppression, violence and abuse.

Islam has enshrined the sanctity of chastity and the protection of women at all times. A woman’s honour and chastity is to be respected under all circumstances.

Rasulullah SAW vehemently disapproved of men ill-treating their wives, and led by example by never ill-treating anyone, including any woman or child in his entire life. He exhorted men thus saying, "Treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers"; and at another instance he said, "The strong man is not the one who can use the force of physical strength, but the one who controls his anger." (Bukhari)

Rasulullah SAW is reported to have stated, "(Is it not a shame that) one of you beats his wife like a slave and then sleeps with her at the end of the day." (Riyadh-us-Saliheen)

As Muslims, we must stop covering up abuse, in the name of "preserving family honour" for verily, the honour of Allah Ta'ala, is above all honour.

Violence against women and children has hurt many, destroyed families, and weakened the society. How much longer can we afford to look the other way?

Let there be zero tolerance for violence against women and children!!
