Sheikh Muhammad Saaleh was asked whether it is allowed for a wife to hit and beat her husband if he mistreats her?
Sheikh replied that is a child allowed to beat her mother if she mistreats her? The answer is No! Because mother is in charge of her son, in the same manner a husband is in charge of her wife so even if he mistreat his wife she is not allowed to hit him.
This doesn’t mean that she should allow her husband to oppress her rather she should warn him from the hukm of Allah, if she doesn’t take advice then the elders of the family should be consulted.
If the husbands changes his behavior then it’s good but if he doesn’t change his actions then the wife should go to a Qadhi (Judge) who will force the husband to give his wife the rights which Allah gave her.
