Saudi 'Marriage Expert' Advises Men To 'Beat Your Wife Where It Doesn't Show'

Topics: Understanding Islam

Apparently, Dr. Phil has it all wrong.

"Dr." Muhammad Al-'Arifi, who in a remarkable segment broadcast on Saudi and Kuwaiti television in September, counseled young Muslim men on how to treat their wives.

"Admonish them - once, twice, three times, four times, ten times," he advised. "If this doesn't help, refuse to share their beds."

And if that doesn't work?

"Beat them," one of his three young advisees responded.

"That's right," Al-'Arifi said.
