Does Islamic Law Give Man Right to Kill Wife?

Lo! Allah enjoineth justice and kindness, and giving to kinsfolk, and forbiddeth lewdness and abomination and wickedness. He exhorteth you in order that ye may take heed.

Of course Islamic Law does not give a man the right to take the law into his own hands or honor kill his wife. The reason behind this blog post is simply because there's some crazy recent news story which tells of a man in Arizona claiming to have the right to kill his wife due to 'Islamic Law'.

The man is clearly mistaken. Sharia (Islamic Law) does not allow honor killings - in fact we've seen the Muslim scholar, Bilal Philips, state that Sharia views honor killings as MURDER which is punishable be death.

Sheikh Ahmad Kutty teaches honor killings are NOT Islamic and that vigilantism is not allowed in Islam either:

“There is no such concept in Islam that is called “honor killing”. Islam holds every soul in high esteem and does not allow any transgression upon it. It does not allow people to take the law in their own hands and administer justice, because doing so will be leading to chaos and lawlessness. Therefore, based on this, Islam does not permit such killings.”
Here's a snip from the news report concerning the man who reportedly claimed that he's allowed to kill his wife:

Police say a valley man threatened to kill his wife, telling his victim "Islamic Law" gave him the right to kill her.

Ansar Muhammad, 43, is facing several charges, including assault and imprisonment.

According to the police report, on April 26, Muhammad sexually assaulted the victim, held her against her will while threatening to kill her, punched and strangulated her, causing physical injuries at their home near 112th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard.

Police say the victim fled to a neighbor's home to call them after the suspect fell asleep.

Muhammad was detained outside his residence upon police arrival and refused to make any statements.

In the report, police say their investigation determined that Muhammad and the victim were arguing about her having an affair when "Ansar picked the victim up, carrying her like a baby and put her in their vehicle against her will."  He then proceeded to drive to the rear of a nearby Walgreens store where "Ansar began to assault the victim by punching her multiple times, leaving physical injuries on her face, neck, back, chest and legs."

When the victim continued to try to get away and told him to stop, police say he told the victim he was going to kill her because he had the right due to his "Islamic Belief."

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
