The truth will set you free. Seek knowledge.
‘…Allah will raise those who have believed among you and those who were given knowledge, by degrees. And Allah is Acquainted with what you do.’ [Surah al-Mujadilah, ayah 11]
The prophet Mohammed PBUH never hit a woman. He cooked, cleaned and treated women kindly. Domestic violence causes depression and and trauma.
Gaining knowledge helps you to understand that your abuser has no fear of Allah SWT therefore he won’t change for you. When you inform him of your rights and he gets aggressive so you don’t dare to raise it again. Only Allah can change your perpetrator.
Allâh will certainly defend those who believe because Allâh loves no perfidious, ungrateful person.
Allah will protect you. If you are living in fear talk to someone as silence hides violence. Finally standing up to much perpetrator changed my life completely Alhamdulillah. I set up the group and the page so other sister’s understand that the abuse they are experiencing has nothing to do with Islam or even culture it is domestic violence. The perpetrators of domestic violence come from all backgrounds, religions etc. Domestic violence is about power and control. It has nothing to do with Islam.
I knew all my right and responsibilities in Islam. My perpetrator understood my rights. He appeared a devout Muslim to the community yet at home was a terrifying perpetrator. He did not fear Allah.
When my fear of staying became the same as leaving I prayed and calmly called the police. I thank Allah for protecting me and our children.
Abu Hurayrah [ra] narrated that the Messenger of Allah [saw] said: “Whosoever follows a path to seek knowledge therein, Allah will make easy for him a path to Paradise.”
[Muslim] The Messenger of Allah [saw] said: “Whoever treads a path due to which he seeks knowledge, Allah will make him tread one of the paths towards Paradise. And the angels lower their wings out of contentment for the seeker of knowledge. And verily all those in the heavens and in the earth, even the fish in the depths of the sea ask forgiveness for the scholar. And verily, the virtue of the scholar over the worshipper is like the virtue of the full moon at night over all of the stars. Indeed, the scholars are the inheritors of the Prophets, for the Prophets do not leave behind a dinar or a dirham for inheritance, but rather, they leave behind knowledge. So whoever takes hold of it, has acquired a large share [i.e. of inheritance].”
