In this hadith, Muhammad orders the large-scale beating of women because they became “bold towards their husbands.”
Muhammad was urged on by his Companion Umar, a noted misogynist about whom Muhammad says, “If there were to be a Prophet after me, it would be Umar bin al-Khattab.” (Tirmidhi 3686)
But after 70 (!) beaten women complain to Muhammad’s wives in one night, Muhammad backs down and tells the wife-beaters:
You will not find that those (men whose wives complained) are the best of you.
Well, that will teach those men! Maybe, Muhammad, you shouldn’t have ordered the beatings in the first place. (Scholars reconcile Muhammad’s (gentle) admonishment of the men by saying that the women must have been beaten “excessively.”)
Islam—where women are beaten (lightlyTM) for becoming "bold towards their husbands.”
