Saudi family therapist: ‘Beat wives with a toothpick or handkerchief and forsake them in bed’

Did these Muslim men ever consider that the clue in their wives disobedience may lay in the punishment ‘forsake her in the bed’?

Besides, how big are the toothpicks in Saudi Arabia? We still remember fresh and clear the story a Saudi woman told us about some Saudi wives ending up at the end of a rope, attached to a tow hook on the husband’s car. Then they got pulled behind the car in high speed until they die. And no police would show up to stop it or arrest the man after the body was dumped. In fact, the woman claimed she had never heard of a single case where a Saudi man was punished for killing his wife or child. The body would just be left behind until ot eventually got picked up and dumped in the desert.

  • Family therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby releases video on ‘wife discipline’
  • He advises Muslim men to speak to their wives about disobedience first
  • Then men should ‘forsake their spouses in bed’ by turning backs on them
  • Finally they should ‘beat their wives’ but ‘not to vent their anger’

A Saudi family therapist has released a video on the ‘correct way’ for Muslims to ‘discipline their wives’ – but advised doing so using a toothpick or handkerchief.

Khaled Al-Saqaby released the footage earlier this year and admitted on camera it was a ‘thorny’ issue, adding: ‘Allah willing, we will cross this bridge safely’.

Mr Al-Saqaby urges men not to physically abuse their wives but pursue three courses of action should they need ‘discipline’ – first talk to them, then ‘forsake them in bed’ and finally beat them.

He said wives ‘undoubtedly’ caused problems because many ‘want to live a life of equality with their husbands’, which is a ‘very grave problem’.

  1. Wait, so why does this matter? In his culture this is the way things are. If it is customary for people to make their children work rather than go to school, why the hell is it any of my or your business? If he isn’t in this country he isn’t subject to our laws and customs. If it is customary to discipline the wife, how is that any different from other cultural differences? Here, it’s customary to disperse crowds using gas weapons that are if fact a war crime to use in a war, but not against your own citizens, apparently. In another place, this might be appalling. But the difference is that most other places have educated enough people to respect cultural differences rather than trying to change them because they seems wrong or strange to you. I’d love to hear your rebuttal.


  2. He said: ‘As a woman once told me, this is the most ingenious way to discipline a wife. If the husband leaves the room it is easier for her than if he remains but turns his back to her or if he sleeps on the floor or vice versa.’ – What if he leaves the room to sleep with his other, or one of his other, wives ?


  3. They used to advocate beating the wife ‘with a rod no thicker than a man’s thumb’. They must be getting more enlightened.


    • Well … There goes the beauty and respect of women in Islam! I love the fact that he freely admits this is the LAW of the Quran, that “Beating” your wife is not only acceptable, but mandated! That women are not equal, that they are inferior; and must be trained and punished if they dare to think or act otherwise. You can’t just divorse your wife, no, no, no …. You must BEAT her like “chattel”; forcing her into submission!

      Then there’s abusuridity of the whole beating issue! First, the key Word here is beat! Second, no one “BEATS” anyone with a toothpick or a handkerchief”!
      Unless he’s using that toothpick as a hyperdermic needle … STICKING “IT IN” her … Or using the “handkerchief” to STRANGLE her!

      The Bible says the anti-Christ is a “hater of women” – Islam and Muslims, have the spirit of the anti-Christ; the hate the Son of God, Jesus and they hate women, because God chose a woman to bring him into the world.
