Format: Paperback
The informal title creates the impression that this text is not a work of scholarship,but it is a work of the highest intellectual integrity. The validity of the argument will be apparent to careful readers,both Muslim and non-Muslim. I have investigated this issue for many years, listening to all sides, and have never come across an argument as thorough and careful as this one. If educated Muslims and non-Muslim scholars, and secular feminists disseminate this book, they will contribute to the dismantling of the hideously distorted traditional interpretation of this Quranic verse, a misinterpretation which is directly responsible for the suffering of thousands of women every day. Because the forces of oppression in certain areas of the Islamic Establishment are so strong, however, the author dares not reveal his name.

Format: Paperback
This is a timely, well researched and much needed work on a highly controversial verse in the Quran regarding the treatment of women in Islam. For those who understand the Quran and its overall framework of peace, wisdom, good, justice, and mercy there is no doubt that traditional interpretations of this verse have been inaccurate and unacceptable. Mr. Muhammad takes a thorough approach to demonstrating that there is no way that the Quran can condone any violence against women. His methodology is comprehensive and the conclusions he offers are based on solid evidence and analysis. He is to be commended for his efforts. For people serious about understanding this verse - and how to approach reading the Quran more broadly - this book (and its associated website) is a must add to your library. Peace.

Great read. Really in-depth and illuminating. I strongly urge everyone in the topic to read it as it's a great example of the kind of analysis/thought we should be using when interpreting the Qur'an, not taking anything for granted. The text does a good job of approaching each issue from multiple angles so as to be as objective as possible.

Great read. Recommended for anyone interested in one of the most commonly held misogynistic myths in Islam. Compared to most of the misinformation out there, this is an analysis based on solid reasoning about what the Qur'an says on this particular subject.

Wife beating was never sanctioned by God. It's always been about a wrong and incorrect translation and this book corrects it.
