Abstract

We have discussed the position of both Islamic jurisprudence and the law from effect of the effect of abuse of the the using of husband for his righ to discipline his wife , in Islamic jurisprudence, there are special effects that vary according to the method that the husband abused whether preaching, leaving or beating and there are general effects whatever the method used to the discipline of the wife. The personal status laws did not discuss this matter, but we can conclude the right of wife to divorce for this reason through expansion of texts discuss the divorce for damage. The positions of criminal laws in Arab countries differed in the recognition of the right of husband to discipline his wife, there are who explicitly recognize this right and there are who refers the matter to the provisions of Islamic low, and there are who silent about this matter although it mentioned the others reasons for using the right. Western criminal laws did not recognize the right of husband to discipline his wife, so he is fully responsible for any attack on his wife.
