He forced her to have sex? That’s completely in accord with Sharia. A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).
And another: “By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).
And as for quoting the Qur’an as he was beating his children, maybe if they were girls he was quoting this verse: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that Allah has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for Allah’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)
There are increasing efforts by Islamic apologists to claim that that verse doesn’t really say “beat them,” but that the Arabic word has been mistranslated by myriad Muslim and non-Muslim translators of the Qur’an. If that is so, however, it’s odd that so many Muslims misunderstand the verse as well, and all in the same way.
“Bail denied for man accused of threatening to burn wife’s genitals, rape,” by Kathleen Frenette, QMI Agency, February 6, 2015 (thanks to Block Ness):
QUEBEC CITY – There will be no bail for a Quebec City man who is accused of threatening to burn his wife’s face and genitals with acid, forcing her to have sex and citing the Koran to justify beating their children.
The 40-year-old man was arrested on Jan. 26 after his wife filed a complaint with police, alleging that he had threatened her in a Walmart.
“The accused is possessive, he feels his wife belongs to him. He invokes the Koran when he hits his children. He tells his wife that if she leaves him, he will burn her face and genitals with acid. Today, his wife has left him, and she in danger because of it,” Judge Bernard Lemieux said in his ruling Friday.
In ordering that the accused remain behind bars, Lemieux cited alleged threats by the man that he would flee to Morocco with his children.
After the initial complaint was filed, the man allegedly emptied the joint bank account and took the family’s passports and the children’s health insurance cards.
“Although the accused has said the money would be used to pay the mortgage and that he did not know where the kids’ papers are, the court does not believe him,” said Lemieux.
In her statement to police, the woman said that since her husband’s arrival in Quebec in 2003, she has repeatedly been a victim of his violence, including being forced to have sex every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. She also said he had repeatedly struck their children as a form of punishment.
