Boston Bomber’s Fave Mosque Tells Muslims to Beat Their Wives

muslim feminism

But the Islamic Society of Boston only recommends moderate wife beating, so it could in no way have contributed to an extremist act of terror. It’s that dangerous tiny of minority of extremists that we have to watch out for, not the majority of moderate wife beating Muslims.

The Islamic Society of Boston, the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, posted an article on its website in September 2004 that advocated for the beating of women as a last resort to force them to behave.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based mosque posted an English translation of Saudi cleric Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajid’s 1997 work, “The Muslim Home: 40 Recommendations in Light of the Quran and Sunnah,” which the mosque headlined, “40 Recommendations for the Muslim Home.”

“Hinting at punishment is an effective means of discipline, so the reason for hanging up a whip or stick in the house was explained in another report, where the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘Hang up the whip where the members of the household can see it, for this is more effective in disciplining them,’” the article states.

“Hitting is not the way to discipline; it is not to be resorted to, except when all other means are exhausted, or when it is needed to force someone to do obligatory acts of obedience, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): ‘… As to those women on whose part you fear ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful),’” it goes on.

The author of the work, Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajid, said on religious program that “Jewish websites” can justifiably be hacked by Muslims as part of the “war against (Jews).”

See this is truly moderate Islam. It only recommends beating your wife after a waiting period and the Sheikh only talks about hacking Jewish websites, instead of hacking off Jewish heads.

Clearly we need more moderate influences like this in America.

    The cowardice…the sickness…the vulgarity of the Islamic male is without bounds.

    • AdinaK

      Vulgarity is more than a polite way to describe the Islamic male. As a matter of deeply sourced research, the mosques in question, under the umbrella of Wahhabists/Muslim Brotherhood Mafia sanctioning, are a clear and present danger, aside from a beating here and there. As such, Americans must be VERY afraid, and not just of the bomber's mosque –

      Again, a clear and present danger!

    ‘… As to those women on whose part you fear ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them”

    In case it be thought that this is the personal recommendation of the Sheikh, let it be clear that this is Koran 4:34. For “ill conduct” other translators have “disobedience”.

    We may all note that the trigger for the recommended beating is not disobedience itself: it is if the husband “fear” disobedience. In other words, the wife can deport herself impeccably and correctly, but if the husband FEAR disobedience on her part then he is entitled to beat her: HE ALONE IS THE JUDGE.

    And muslim spokesmen say that Islam respects women’s rights.

    Well, "beat them (lightly, if it is useful)"… if lightly is not useful, only then go for the full monty.

    What could be more enlightened than that.

    For mosque attenders like the Tsarnaev brothers it is the same Koran that commands:

    “Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them” (9:5)

    If the mosque is teaching Islam as normal listeners will be told that the Koran is “true from eternity to eternity” (Sam Solomon, former professor of Sharia law), and that to deny any verse in it is a capital offence (Manual of Islamic Law o8.7(7), available as a free download:… ).

    Whoever were the assailants who cut the throats of the three Jewish men on 9/11/11 and spread pounds of marijuana (Sharia-disapproved) on their bodies, did not steal the cash in the apartment, and are deduced by police to have been known to them, they may have been familiar with the prayer of Palestinian Al Ahrar movement as broadcast on Hamas tv:

    “Praise be to you, our Lord. You have made our killing of the Jews an act of worship, through which we come closer to you.”

    Criminally, as a result of Obama’s scrubbing of all mention of Islam, muslim, anti-Semitism, jihad, sharia, etc. from police training materials the Boston police did not know. Thus does the administration blindfold and handicap the forces of law and order.

    From everything I've seen and read about the evil death cult that is islam, most muslimas are ok with their status and treatment – many even like it. What a bunch of pathetic losers.

  • Michael Copeland

    By the way, the Koran does not say to beat "lightly": it just says "beat".
    The brackets round the word in the quotation show that it is the editor's addition.

    Did any of these muslims contact authorities after their fellow follower of islam was obviously radicalized and thrown out of the mosque? Did any of these muslims contact authorities after their fellow follower of Islam's picture was all over the news?

    On the wife beating….seriously, I don't care what they do to other muslims, especially if the muslims don't care. Anytime a muslima is "honored" by her family, another potential bomb factory is closed.

    This iman and his quote should be on a new AFDI poster in every city in the Western world.

  • g_jochnowitz

    Despite the legitimization of wife beating in the Koran, leftists, including feminists, continue to support Islamists and oppose Israel. Sarah Schulman even says that Israel is so bad that it does good things in order to look good.
    Anti-Zionism is the most powerful political force on earth.

    So that would be B&D as opposed to S&M?

      Yes, but it's 24/7, not sex play.

    "But the Islamic Society of Boston only recommends moderate wife beating, so it could in no way have contributed to an extremist act of terror."

    They believe in moderate terror. No nukes until really necessary, after the final phases have arrived.

    Any Western non Islamic woman who marries a Muslim desrves to be abused. Either that or perhaps she should be in a mental insitution.
