O believers treat women with kindness even if you dislike them; it is quite possible that you dislike something which Allah might yet make a source of abundant good” (An Nisa 4:19)

Domestic violence is an issue that has persisted for more than 1000 years now.

It continues to age as people from our ummah continue to misinterpret and misconstrue the Quran and Ahadith and what has been taught as the coping mechanism by our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H)

NOTE: Domestic violence is a broad term. It can take many forms, including emotional, sexual and physical abuse and threats of abuse. 

Abuse by a partner can happen to anyone.  Therefore, victims can be either men or women or both. In order for one to handle the issue in the light of what Shariah teaches it is important for us a community to help our children and family members understand and express their emotions in a healthy manner. 

COUNTER POINT wants to educate men, women and societyabout the implications of domestic violence in the light of Shariah.

  • Victims of abuse MUST seek help.
  • Women or Men MUST NOT continue and stay in a relationship even if they are being abused.*
  • Support the victim and not the abuser
  • The victims SHOULD NOT stay in it for the sake of the children and more…

We’d like to debunk all these myths, misconceptions and judgements about domestic violence to reshape how one must look into the matter.
