The husband is allowed, to prevent her from evil, to apply some type of physical force … It is not allowed to break the skin, does not allow to break a bone or even leave a mark on the skin. A beating that is that severe is forbidden and this is a type of assault, and is haram, and a crime in Islam to treat your wife like that. But a type of physical reprimand in order to bring her to goodness is allowed.

Similar to horses then? :nono:

Yes, as a Muslim, you are allowed to beat your wife lovingly. As long as you leave no bruises or welts. For Islam is the religion of peace and has perfected Allah's message for all mankind. Funny though, that my Muslim fundamentalist ex-wife didn't agree with this part of the creed. Not that I would have dreamed of lifting a finger to my wife. It did amuse me that every utterance of Allah and his child-rapist on Earth was infallible. Except for that one. :scratch:
