Famous quotes containing the word beat:
“Men are the managers of the affairs of women
for that God has preferred in bounty
one of them over another, and for that
they have expended of their property.
Righteous women are therefore obedient,
guarding the secret for Gods guarding.
And those you fear may be rebellious
admonish; banish them to their couches,
and beat them.”
—QurAn. Women 4:38, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
