Abusive husband options
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

If rage has overtaken the good senses of ones husband, and in his rage, (Allah forbid) the husband lays his hands upon his innocent wife..the wife in Islam has the following lawful options:
  1. If the wife believes that this was a one-off incident, and rage had overtaken the otherwise good sense of her husband; and when the rage cools down the husband is sensible enough to differentiate the truth from the falsehood..and the wife can bring herself to forgive her husband for his lapse in justice.it would be prudent for the wife to forgive her husband his fault and save her marriage; seeking the reward for her patience and forbearance from Allah Subhanah in the Hereafter.
  2. But if the wife sincerely believes that this would or has become a recurring problem, and her husband is unjust and abusive towards her without right..she is well within her rights in Islam to seek a permanent separation from such an evil person by initiating a divorce proceedings against him, and there would be absolutely no blame or sin upon her.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
