Divine Revelation

A blog with an Islamic perspective

A new law was passed in India to offer protection to women against domestic violence. The old law was amended giving sweeping powers to judges to issue protection orders when required.
Women welcomed it but men were skeptical as they envisaged misuse. Latest reports point out that women have started using the law even as it created discomfort to some.

What is Islam's stand on domestic violence and how does it tackle it? There is a comprehensive section on that wonderful site www.islamonline.net (may Allah reward them) that deals with some of the issues related to domestic abuse.

Islam gives that delicate balance (which is so difficult to find in other Deens) between women's rights and mens' reponsibilities. May Allah guide us all! Amin !
