Here is the verse:
“Men are in charge of women because Allah has made one to excel the other… Good women are obedient…As for those women who are disobedient: admonish them, refuse to share their beds, and hit them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them.” Quran 4:34 [Holy scripture of Islam]
Now I know this is a bad translation, but I think we get the gist of it. And I agree with this verse, I do not have a problem with it. To me this verse says that when a man provides for the family, including the wife, than she should obey him when it is in her interest, in his interest, and the interest of the household. I would have liked it if it said that the husband should also obey the wife on matters that concern her. Anyways, I was thinking what if the wife is the sole breadwinner of the family, and the husband is a stay at home dad who cooks and cleans and takes care of the family. This is not unheard of, and is becoming more and more common in society. In this situation, wouldn't you say that this verse can be interpreted in a way to say that the husband should obey the wife when it is in his interest, in her interest, and the interest of the household?
