Islamic Marriage Councellor

An Islamic guide on how to beat your wife
MADRID -- An imam who wrote a book on how to beat your wife without leaving marks on her body has been ordered by a judge in Spain to study the country's constitution.
Hmmm... how long until the Spanish version of our 1st Amendment gets analyzed to the point of justifying this Imam?
The judge told Mohamed Kamal Mustafa, imam of a mosque in the southern resort of Fuengirola, to spend six months studying three articles of the constitution and the universal declaration of human rights.

Mr. Mustafa was sentenced to 15 months in jail and fined about $2,600 last year after being found guilty of inciting violence against women.

A judge released him after 22 days in jail on the condition that he undertake a re-education course.
Hey, that's brainwashing! How insensitive to his cultural heritage!
The Spanish government has set up a commission to find ways for the Muslim community to regulate itself. A central recommendation is that imams speak Spanish and have a basic knowledge of human rights and Spanish law.
Wow, what guts, make the guy learn the laws of the land?

Learn the language?

Learn how to behave like a civilized human being?

I have a feeling that some defense lawyer is going to characterize these common sense demands as outrageous!
In his book "Women in Islam," published four years ago, Mr. Mustafa wrote that verbal warnings followed by a period of sexual inactivity could be used to discipline a disobedient wife.
Sounds like roll reversal...
If that failed, he argued that, according to Islamic law, beatings could be judiciously administered.

"The blows should be concentrated on the hands and feet using a rod that is thin and light so that it does not leave scars or bruises on the body," he wrote.
Wouldn't want to leave bruises of course, how tolerant and kind of this preacher of the religion of Peace!

If this case was presented here in the US I can't imagine a judge getting away with such a ruling. Learn the language indeed.
