Husband condemned to reading rights books for hitting his wife

May 7, 2012

A Saudi national found guilty of hitting his wife has been sentenced to reading two books that explain relations between spouses in Islam. He will later sit for a test on what he learned from the books.

The husband was also told to memorize five of the 30 parts of the Quran, and 100 sayings by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), Saudi Arabic daily Al Madinah reported on Monday.

The husband was also ordered by a court in the Red Sea resort of Jeddah to give his wife 7,000 riyals ($1,866) and to make sure to preserve women’s rights.

The wife had complained to the security authorities after her husband hit her during an argument when she told him that he should go to hospital to visit his cousin while she sees her family.

The husband became reportedly angry over her wish to go out, hit her and caused her bruises.

He admitted he had hit her during the investigation.
