Domestic Violence – A Friday Speech

In this beneficial speech, Shaykh Waleed Basyouni reminds and encourages people to deal gently with their wives and families.

In this month of October, Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I think it will be a good idea if we listen to this beneficial speech.

In his Friday Speech, Shaykh Waleed Basyouni talks about domestic violence. He starts with a hadith in which Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace) says as part of this hadith: “So, fear Allah when you deal with women“. (This sentence of the hadith is related by Muslim)

In a another hadith, the Prophet (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said: “The best of you is the one who is best to his wife, and I am the best of you to my wives.” (Al-Tirmidhi and Al-Darimi)

Then, he continues to talk about how Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and grant him peace) dealt with his wives.
