In the video, Mr Al-Saqaby suggests the aim of beating a wife “is to discipline, not to vent one’s anger”.
The family therapist suggests the beating should not be performed with a rod or sharp object, but instead “something like the sewak tooth-cleaning twig – or with a handkerchief”.
Explaining the motive behind beating a wife, he says: “Because the goal is merely to make the wife feel that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.”
Before beating one’s wife, Mr Al-Saqaby suggests a husband reminds her of “your rights and of her duties, according to Allah”.
“Unfortunately, some wives want to live a life of equality with their husband,” he says, stressing that this was the main reasons a man may beat his wife.
“This is a very grave problem,” he added.
He also says he is “sad to say” some women provoke their husbands to beat them.
