Of course. Islam justifies both.
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:
“If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).
Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad:
“By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
As as for wife-beating:
“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)
“Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS because the group’s systemised sexual violence appealed to them, study shows,” by Iain Burns, Mailonline, October 9, 2017 (thanks to Robert):
A new study has shown that many men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined ISIS because of the group’s use of slavery and rape.
The Henry Jackson Society report claims the sanctioning of systemic sexual abuse served as a way of ‘attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters’.
It was also used as a means of delivering cruel punishment to ‘kafir’ – non-Muslims – and as a form of terrorism.
With slavery and rape given Islamic justification by the depraved group’s theologians, sexual exploitation was also used as a way of raising cash for the caliphate.
The study shows many ISIS fighters from the US and Europe had a background of abusing women, which implies a relationship between ‘committing terrorist attacks and having a history of physical and/or sexual violence’.
One infamous jihadist described as key in the savage persecution of non-Muslims in ISIS territory is the Briton Siddhartha Dhar.
The father-of-four, once a bouncy castle salesman in Walthamstow, is said to have even enslaved some Yazidi women and girls himself and regularly taken part in trafficking.
The Yazidis, deemed by ISIS to be ‘pagans’ that can be raped and enslaved without consequence, have provided much of the supply of women and girls for the group.
According to the report, the prospect of having unlimited access to women was intentionally advertised to attract men from conservative Islamic societies where casual sex is prohibited.
The group also sanctioned forced conversions and pregnancies after women were enslaved or abused as a means of adding to the ranks of the extremist cult.
Another Briton with a history of sexual violence – Ondogo Ahmed, from London, who was jailed for eight years after raping a 16-year-old girl – joined the group in 2013.
He fled to the caliphate in Syria when out of prison on licence.
Nikita Malik, the author of the report, was quoted in The Guardian as saying: ‘These cases indicate an existence of a type of terrorism that is sexually motivated, in which individuals with prior records of sexual violence are attracted by the sexual brutality carried out by members of Islamic State.’
Other men with a past of domestic or sexual abuse include London Bridge murderer Rachid Redouane and Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood….
